- The successful candidate will be in the hot seat during newscasts, sports shows and other live programming as warranted – using Ross Automation, iNews, Chyron and other broadcast software and hardware.
- The production technician will direct specific shows regularly, while assisting or backing up other shows on the same shift – whether as an AD, audio operator or other role.
- Other daily duties will include prepping the studio for live broadcasts, maintaining audio equipment like mics and IFB’s, and envisioning creative ways to use our studios and control rooms.
- Members of the production team at FOX 13 are leaders and collaborators on our news team.
- The successful candidate will communicate well under pressure. The control room setting can be hectic at times, but the right director is always calmly in control.
- Must have experience directing live daily newscasts on an automation system, and be comfortable during unscripted moments like breaking news or other live events.
- This is a full-time, regular shift, but the news business is a 24/7 world and schedules can occasionally change due to vacation relief, breaking news, or other staffing requirements.
