  • Five (5) years of experience in professional live broadcast operations (radio/TV/cable) running professional robotic video cameras required.
  • This position requires correct evaluation of picture color and tone. The ability to distinguish colors is critical.
  • You must be detail-oriented and be able to multitask in a fast-paced environment.
  • Working knowledge of common business software applications, particularly Microsoft Word, Excel and Outlook.
  • Must be self-sufficient and have a “press-on-regardless” attitude.
