Successful Digital Producers at 13News Now become leaders in the newsroom, responsible for the audience experience on digital, social media and streaming platforms. They track multiple streams of information and communication, helping the newsroom stay on the pulse of what’s happening in our communities and deliver the most important stories of the day to our audience. They take initiative in confirming news tips and creating content (stories, videos, social media posts, etc.) around key digital audience drivers – like breaking and trending news, weather, sports and politics – with the goal of engaging, broadening and serving our audience.

Qualified candidates should be strong writers, first, with the ability to write quickly and accurately – and demonstrate that through a writing test.

The candidate hired will build upon those foundational skills by learning how to take an audience-first approach to news reporting, writing, producing and digital platform distribution.

  • Use audience analytics tools and SEO strategies, practice social media listening and monitor digital audience trends to discover story ideas, determine content creation and make a variety of editorial decisions for our digital platforms
  • Perform other tasks as required by supervisor or senior digital producers
