How do I hire a Producer, Code Switch? Role Summary
The nation’s premier podcast on race and identity is seeking an experienced producer, writer, and storyteller. As a producer on the Code Switch team, you’ll bring ideas, interviews, books and thinkers to our podcast. You’ll head out into the field for original reporting. You’ll reel in the big interviews from the key players on the issues. You’ll shape the sound and textures of our podcast and bring your unique perspective and insights to our story meetings.
You’ll contribute on a regular basis to our weekly episodes, supporting our hosts and editors and making their work sparkle. You’ll work with other journalists, at NPR and elsewhere, to shape their reporting into long-form audio stories, and you’ll pitch – and execute – your own original ideas and projects. You’ll have the range to cover the broad landscape of race, identity and ethnicity in the U.S., but also develop areas of your own interest and expertise. You’ll work independently at times and join in our group edits and collaborations.
You’ll bring to us your passion for high-level journalism, for sound-rich stories that make for “driveway moments” and your interest and enthusiasm for telling stories that often get left out of mainstream discussions and bring those stories to new and diverse audiences.
