TEGNA, Inc.

DESCRIPTION

Do you love words? Love the news? Love the bungee-jumping, adrenaline-rushing, finger-tingling sensation of writing breaking news with all eyes on you? Come work with us. We’re the NBC affiliate in Phoenix, which is one of the weirdest – and warmest — news markets in the country.

We’re looking for a digital content producer who loves to write and wants the freedom to create. You’ll work on The Herd, our digital team, which maintains the front door to the station’s content on apps, the Web, social media and streaming platforms. You’ll write breaking news and quirky stories. You’ll work with reporters to make their stories better for the online audience. You’ll be able to pursue your own passions for stories. Our coverage area is huge – nearly the entire state. So you’ll be writing about mountains, prairies, deserts and a bunch of manmade lakes that have suspiciously large fish in them.

We’re looking for self-starters who have experience in newsrooms, an eye for detail and find mistakes in copy infuriating. You should be equally unafraid to pick up the phone and make calls to fill out a story as you are to build a map or a photo gallery for the web audience without being asked to. There’s some video editing in this job and some social media work. But it is, at its base, a job dependent on writing.

We believe in training, good onboarding and career development. We believe in coming up with solutions. We also believe that journalism is one of democracy’s highest callings. If you think so, too, then let’s talk. Your application should include a cover letter, not just a resume.

Requirements:

  • Must have worked in a newsroom. We would prefer at least a year of newsroom experience, but would take a recent grad if you’re amazing.
  • Must have a bachelor’s degree or higher in journalism, communications, marketing or the equivalent experience.
  • Must be able to pass a timed writing test
