POSITION: MULTI-MEDIA PRODUCERS
DEPARTMENT: News

KFVS-TV has immediate openings for Multi-Media Producers.
Qualified applicants will have experience producing and posting articles, slideshows and videos (live and on-demand) to digital platforms such as desktop and mobile, as well as writing VOs, VOSOTs and occasional news and feature packages for broadcast.

We’re seeking a multi-screen-minded writer with a diverse skill set and a comfort working in a fast-paced newsroom environment. A strong candidate is one who’s mindful of live and on-demand video opportunities for all platforms, especially our increasingly important OTT product on ROKU, Amazon Fire and Apple TV.

Enthusiastic producers with strong news judgment and the ability to juggle multiple many tasks at once without much supervision are encouraged to apply. The ideal multi-platform producer is one with prior newsroom experience and can thrive in a breaking news environment in which priorities and assignments change frequently. Process and technology evolve frequently as well, so being a quick learner helps, too.

KFVS is big on training and helping young producers develop their skill sets and keeping them on a growth track. In that this is a television newsroom, flexibility with scheduling is a must.

* Collaborate with other news team members to manage and develop stories from concept to publication
* Clip and post video to all digital platforms and OTT for on-demand consumption
* Build out graphics and social memes using Photoshop
* Present content in front of camera for digital and broadcast platforms

Requirements:

*Sense of community service and desire to deliver the best quality product.
*Successful candidate will need a degree in Journalism or related field.
*Comfortable in a fast paced, deadline driven environment
*Solid time management skills
*Strong verbal and written communication skills including excellent news writing and visual story-telling ability
* Solid news judgment
* Familiarity with digital video cameras, non-linear editing, and Social Media platforms
* Ability to lift 35-40 lbs. of gear
*Ability to work independently but with a strong team spirit
*Strong problem-solving skills and ability to think out-of-the-box
*Adaptability
* Willingness to work evenings, weekends and holidays if needed
* Candidate must pass a drug screen and possess a good driving record.
* Experience with CMS/digital publishing platforms (ARC would be a plus), broadcast newsroom software such as ENPS and video editing software (Edius would be a plus)
* Candidate must pass a drug screen and possess a good driving record.
