News Production Assistant
Full Time Job
Part-time News Production Assistants work in the KYW newsroom as an assistant to the editor on duty and the news director.
News Production Assistants are responsible for coordinating the retrieval and labeling of sound, transcribing copy from field reporters, answering newsroom phone lines, and updating information such as sports scores, weather and market information. They must be able to handle listener inquiries and complaints in a polite, efficient manner.
News Production Assistants should be able to recognize the urgency of phone calls (sources, breaking news tips, notice of news conferences) and make sure those calls are directed to the correct individual.
As KYW Newsradio is a 24-hour business, News Production Assistants are expected to be available to work irregular hours, such as evenings, overnights, and weekends. We value ingenuity and a ''can do'' attitude in our production assistants.
A college degree, with a concentration in broadcast journalism is preferred. Seniors with a demonstrated interest in broadcasting through internships or experience in college radio/television will be considered. It is important that student applicants have a class schedule that allows them work evenings, weekends and overnight weekend hours.
A current resume and cover letter are required.
