DESCRIPTION

KPRC 2, the Graham Media Group-owned NBC station in Houston, is in the midst of a LOCAL NEWS TRANSFORMATION, and we’re looking for journalists who want to join us in the adventure!

 

We are searching for a News Producer who wants to break out of the traditional newscast mold and help our newsroom evolve news content for broadcast, streaming, and mobile audiences. We’re searching for someone who’s eager to try new things and explore new ways to produce and distribute news in motion. We are exploring ways to move our audiences seamlessly between platforms, delighting them with engaging live coverage and important events as they happen – we want someone to join us on this innovation train! Houston is an ultra-competitive breaking news market, and KPRC 2 is focused on meeting our audiences where they are, so our next generation of newscasts will move away from the traditional and focus on updating our community in real-time on our platforms. We’re searching for someone with a sense of urgency, strong writing skills, and the ability to craft a creative and memorable program that brings our audience through the news that’s important to them.

 

KPRC 2 is a state-of-the-art media hub where you’ll have all the latest tools and technology at your fingertips. You’ll be surrounded by an experienced team of reporters, photojournalists, anchors, and news managers across platforms to help ensure your success. We ask you to bring your passion for news, dedication to high-quality journalism, active participation in the editorial process, and an unlimited supply of original ideas.  

 

What’s in it for you? A company dedicated to employee development and growth, diversity and inclusion, a positive work environment, and a culture that rewards and encourages innovation.

Responsibilities:

Our producers oversee all major components of their newscasts, including writing and coordinating with reporters, executive producers, assignment desk staff, video editors, the digital team, and directors to execute and deliver our daily news plan, continuous breaking news coverage, and live event coverage on KPRC 2+.  As active participants in our editorial process, producers bring original story ideas to the table each day. Producers are proactive in scouring live video feeds and social media to discover new content and help develop interesting ways to bring those stories to life.

 

KPRC 2 and Graham Media believe each employee contributes significantly to our success. That contribution should not be limited by the assigned responsibilities outlined in a job description. Therefore, this job description is designed to outline primary duties, qualifications, and job scope without limiting the employee or the organization to specific silos. We always look for growth opportunities for our team members and encourage our employees to look for additional ways to contribute to our media hub's overall growth and success.
