Are you a sports news fanatic with your finger on the pulse of trending digital content?


Audacy Detroit is looking for a highly motivated, creative and detail-oriented Executive Producer of Video to join our team.


The ideal candidate is a quick-thinking self-starter and resourceful writer who has a way with words and the ability to ignite conversations and create videos in everything from traditional sports to the intersection of sports and culture. You have a sharp instinct of what both passionate and more casual local fans will engage with, balanced with a commitment to content analytics and video production. You thrive in a fast-paced, communication-driven team environment, and multiple content management systems don’t scare you. 


You are passionate about sports news and driven to build traffic and audience with unique content marketing. You have a proven track record of growing digital audiences and engagement on websites and social platforms. You are on top of all of the latest local sports news, including identifying social/Google trends and breaking news stories, and are constantly looking for engaging content that is a fit for the brand. 



What You'll Do:

  • Responsible for the stations overall video production 
  • Produce, publish and distribute both original and syndicated stories across all station platforms, focusing on owned and operated properties like web/app/social
  • Ensure all daily content is optimized for search
  • Write in a style that is appealing for specific audiences (die-hard vs. casual sports news) — extensive knowledge of the local sports and sports-culture landscape required
  • Create content that drives audience growth and engagement, while supporting station and sales needs, when needed
  • Help to plan and execute push alert and newsletter sends for top station & podcast content
  • Understand reporting systems like Google Analytics and Sprout, and how to use data to drive audience growth
  • Develop and maintain strong industry contacts to promote the content you create, getting it in front of new audiences, including partner sites
  • Use editorial sense through content and social to convert readers to digital listeners
  • Strong communication with local show producers to identify show highlights, big-name guests, and breaking news to turn around content immediately–owning local news as opposed to being scooped.
  • Work closely with Brand Manager as primary contact on local sports interviews and opportunities
  • Be an effective communicator (beyond email), and possess the ability to maintain a healthy working relationship in an open environment with all levels of the local/central organization 
  • Help Managing Editor with critical duties such as building communication bridges across the local station network, establishing and sticking to brand/voice, and innovating new content ideas
  • Work with Ad Sales team on occasion on creation of content for sponsorship packages
  • Other duties as assigned
