Executive Producer - FT
The largest broadcast newsgathering organization between Los Angeles and the Bay Area is seeking an exceptional leader to help guide our team and product to new heights of successful and compelling content. Here, the title “Executive Producer” means being the #2 manager in the newsroom. It means working side by side with producers, multi-media journalists, editors and anchors: all in an effort to create the best possible content on air and online.
We are one news team providing content for three television stations: NewsChannel 3, KCOY-12 and Fox 11, serving Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties. This position is based at the Santa Barbara studio, where construction is about to begin on a state-of-the-art newsroom and we have journalists based in Ventura, Santa Maria and San Luis Obispo.
Online, we’re on several platforms including station web sites, Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus. Daily, you will work with producers to showcase enterprise and exclusive content; you will work with the assignments desk and with journalists to ensure we’re on top of the big stories with a laser-focus on enterprise reporting. You will also work closely with the News Director and other station managers to ensure we live our brand and reach our coverage and content goals.
The successful candidate for this position will have a track record showing a strong hands-on approach to producing compelling newscasts, with the type of personality that is calm under extreme pressure, team-focused and ready to take on what is needed at any given moment. A minimum of five years experience as a local news producer is required. Previous managerial/supervisory experience is strongly preferred.
