WTKR News3 in Norfolk, VA has an opening for a news producer.
We are looking for a creative, visionary producer with a proven track record. We want someone who is a fierce competitor and likes to win.
In addition to the standard duties of a producer (write, gather information, select stories, decide order and treatment of stories), the producers of the WTKR newsroom are responsible for developing an overall style and identity for their assigned newscast with a keen focus on building the station’s brand.
We’re not looking for a show stacker, we’re looking for a person who will bring a daily vision for their newscasts to the newsroom and a clear plan on how they’re going to deliver on that vision.
Ability to type, use computers, and other such equipment. Strong command of the English language, grammar, spelling and punctuation. Ability to work under pressure and deadlines. Good communication skills and team-building skills. Ability to multi-task.
A college degree in Journalism or Broadcast Communications or related-degree is preferred. Also prefer candidates with 1-2 years of experience as a producer in a commercial television station.
WTKR News3 is owned by the Tribune Media Company. Candidates MUST apply at www.tribunemedia.com.
