Description

Afternoon News Producer

Join us and help deliver timely and in-depth news to Vermont communities each afternoon. You’ll work to produce news for All Things Considered and our digital platforms. 

We seek an enterprising, thoughtful producer who has solid news judgment to ensure our audience has comprehensive and deep coverage of news each day. 

You’ll work with the host of All Things Considered to create newscasts and interviews that go past headlines to add context and connect with communities. You’ll also work closely with reporters to help edit and publish stories online in the afternoons. 

You must be equally adept at breaking news on air and digitally. And you must be committed to diversity in reporting and sourcing. 

We’re looking for a journalist who loves the medium of public radio, but you don’t need direct broadcast experience. We’re looking for at least two years of journalism experience, more preferred.
