Boise State Public Radio is hiring a Senior Producer for a forthcoming daily show!
The Senior Producer is responsible for developing and producing our daily one-hour newsmagazine on Boise State Public Radio. Will be instrumental in helping to create and operate this new program. We're looking for someone who loves to dig into issues, find the human side of policy debates, and explore a range of topics - politics, environment, education, business, health care, and the arts.
The Senior Producer will oversee the process for selecting program topics, guests, stories and recurring elements. He/she will work closely with Host and oftentimes with other senior editorial personnel. The SP will create and maintain a system for tracking current and planned show topics, daily promotional plan and archive of past subjects. The SP will supervise all aspects of day-to-day broadcast program production. He/she will help ensure that the content is of high standards employed by public radio in the areas of journalistic integrity, creativity, fairness and balance. In addition to having a firm understanding of the community service role of noncommercial broadcast journalism, the ideal candidate must also have solid news judgment – the ability to determine which topics are most informative and the greatest value to the communities Boise State Public Radio serves.
The SP will also participate in special programming, fundraising programs and events, and town-hall meetings. This person must be a responsible, informed ambassador for Boise State Public Radio.
