Full Time Job
FOX 13 and FOX 13+ is seeking a dynamic newscast producer to join our team. Our producers contribute to the full editorial process in our newsroom – from the first editorial call, to the moment a live newscast wraps up. The producers at FOX 13 are top-tier journalists who have a passion for news in the Pacific Northwest – and around the world. Our producers are not ''show stackers'' – they are creative and curious journalists who think outside the box when building a newscast, and come to the table every day with compelling stories to pursue. Producers play a critical role in determining how the news is presented, which involves strategic story placement within the rundown, as well as crisp, clear writing for the anchors to deliver.
Producers are responsible for their individual, assigned newscast. Each producer works with their EP and other newsroom staff to take daily reporter assignments, VO's, VOSOT's and other stories to build a compelling, informative live newscast for the viewers of Western Washington. Producers log and transcribe soundbytes, write VO's, teases and opens, create basic graphics and coordinate with video editors. They also manage the control room during their assigned newscast – working closely with a director and production team to ensure the live program is executed flawlessly. When breaking news happens, producers should be able to quickly add the appropriate information to the show. They are also called upon to produce unscheduled breaking news or other items as events warrant. This is a full time position on a regular shift, but the news is a 24/7 world and that could occasionally include other shifts as breaking news or other circumstances warrant.
At FOX, we foster a culture and environment where everyone feels welcome and can thrive. We are deeply committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion, including attracting, retaining, and promoting diverse talent across our company. We live in a diverse world, with different ideas and different perspectives that come together to spark new ideas and make great things happen. That means reflecting the diversity of the world around us is critical to our company's success. We ensure that our viewers, communities and employees feel heard, represented, and celebrated both on screen and off.
