The person in this role will be responsible for presenting news stories and other content for all platforms in a manner that is clear, engaging and meaningful to news consumers. The job also involves ensuring that the news content meets company standards for journalistic integrity and production quality.
According to the official listing on the station’s website, the responsibilities include “presenting news stories and other content for all platforms (television, radio, web) in a manner that is clear, engaging, and meaningful to news consumers.” The salary ranges from $20,000 to $100,000. The ad says that the station is located in one of America’s fastest-growing and most desirable cities, and it’s a great opportunity for someone who wants to work at an innovative newsroom with a highly collaborative spirit.
