Producer

Details:
EyeOpener, an innovative Tribune Media syndicated morning show, is looking for an experienced Show Producer to handle one our three live hours.

We need a creative producer who is willing and able to approach the show much differently. On most days your lead will not come from the traditional headlines or the top story on the feeds. You must be willing to analyze social media and online metrics and find the best ongoing conversations for the broadcast. You must be able to find interesting water-cooler stories, compelling slice of life stories, and the newest viral video. You will also have a wide range of original material and segments to round out your show. The product must be edgy, unconventional and give morning viewers a reason to stop what they’re doing and get involved with the show. The most important things you can bring to this position are creativity, courage and a determination to do something very different, without apologizing for it. As in any producer position, it also means being a creative writer, creating desktop graphics, choosing video and working closely with the production staff. You will also contribute material to the websites and pages, and work with the social media producers to encourage online conversations.

This is not a typical newscast. You must have a real interest and appreciation for hot topics, trends in music and pop culture and a keen interest in the things people are talking about online every day. Your writing must be upbeat, conversational, and edgy. If you want to produce a network nightly newscast or wildlife documentaries, this is not the job for you. Our show is “Wow,” not “Oh no.”

This is a permanent overnight position. You must be a self-starter and independent thinker. You must be able to produce a lot of interesting material under tight deadlines every day, with little hand-holding. You must love working with a diverse and offbeat staff who like putting square pegs in round holes.

Experience:

Applicants must have solid newsroom & digital technology experience, but you must also be smart, clever, creative and have an edgy sense of humor. You must be able to produce lots of material every day.

We need your resume and an interesting letter telling us about yourself. We need to know what you have done in the past and for whom. You must include links to shows, sites, pages or blogs. Applications that don’t include these things will not be considered. Period. We love people who want to do new things and take chances. BUT, if you haven’t worked in a broadcast television environment before, this is not the place to start.

Requirements:

Candidates must know more than news. Comfort with trends, pop culture and social media’s effect on what we talk about are critical. You must know how to create and structure segments that are unscripted, and based solely on talking points. You will work with a variety of proprietary Tribune newsroom tools, so knowledge of newsroom computer systems, graphic systems and 21st century editing systems is mandatory. You must be detail oriented, tech savvy and able to make fast changes when the situation demands it. You must be able to inspire others, foster trust and believe that thinking differently is the most important part of the job. Candidates must understand and appreciate the demands of a live show and popular websites and feed the beast every day.

Experience working on live newscasts is vital.

This is not your standard newsroom position. It is an unusual job in a unique environment.
