JOB DESCRIPTION

The Evening Edit team is looking for an experienced line producer with excellent communication skills. As Line Producer, your main responsibility each day will be translating the editorial “vision” for the show into an organized rundown and overseeing its live production on air. This includes building the rundown, making timing decisions, and managing producer assignments. You will also be responsible for producing some segments (including scripts and elements).  You must be assertive, detail-oriented, and a natural self-starter. You should also have outstanding judgment and organizational skills. Most of all, you must be an effective communicator who can serve as the main point of contact for producers during the day and talent/crew during the broadcast. You should be able to improvise and make smart decisions on-the-fly in a way that inspires the people around you to follow your lead.

  • Handle all aspects of pre-production

  • Write/copy edit scripts as needed, as well as banners

  • Create research packets for the anchor

  • Guide the technical crew through each element during the show

  • Keep the anchor on time using clear and effective cues

  • Monitor the aesthetics of the screen to make sure visuals support the conversation

  • Effectively manage your own time and attention; prioritize and delegate tasks when necessary

WHAT YOU WILL NEED

  • 5+ years of prior television (or similar) experience

  • Experience in a live control room

  • Experience interacting with high profile talent

  • Exceptional editorial skills; ability to recognize stories and elements with high potential for compelling television

  • Solid base understanding of technical skills (specifically newsroom and video editing software)

NICE TO HAVE, BUT NOT A DEAL BREAKER
