Date: September 17, 2013
Location: Colorado Springs, CO.
Position: TV News Producer
If you are looking for an opportunity to work in a great news market in a beautiful setting, here’s your chance. In just three months, our staff has covered the Black Forest and Royal Gorge wildfires, major flooding throughout El Paso County, and a historic recall election.
KRDO-TV, the ABC affiliate in Colorado Springs, is the winner of the past 2 Regional Murrow Awards for Overall Excellence. We are seeking an aggressive, highly motivated and skilled TV News Producer to join our staff. Colorado Springs is just an hour away from Denver and it is very common for people to make a major market jump from KRDO-TV.
The candidate will have strong formatting and writing skills. We are a fast-paced newsroom that puts an emphasis on enterprise reporting, breaking news and weather coverage. Your duties will include directing reporters and photographers to complete assigned tasks, responding to viewer inquiries, and making regular “beat” calls to police and fire agencies to stay on top of breaking news. You must have a winning attitude and want to be an integral part of the “big story”. If you are bi-lingual in Spanish, that’s a plus.
A degree in journalism, mass communications or equivalent experience is required. You will need to have excellent verbal and written communications skills and strong attention to detail. The ability to stay calm under pressure and handle stress is a must. Must be a good team leader, proficient in multi tasking and have a flexible schedule.
