Newscast Producer –
12 News Today
Republic Media in Phoenix, Arizona, is seeking an innovative, motivated and creative individual to join the creative producer team powering our morning newscast, 12 News Today.
Republic Media is the parent company of KPNX-12 News, a top-tier NBC affiliate; The Arizona Republic, the nation’s 12th largest newspaper; and azcentral.com, one of the nation’s largest news websites. In addition to these core brands, Republic Media produces original lifestyle programs (Arizona Midday and Valley Dish), publishes LaVoz and TV y Mas as well as 18 community newspapers and AZ magazine.
Producers at 12 News work within an integrated, multi-platform news organization to create innovative approaches to news coverage and presentation. We’re not looking for the tried-and-true. We’re looking for an experienced producer with an ability to break away from the expected and create memorable programming for television and an ever expanding digital environment.
Qualified applicants should view news show production as a combination of great journalism and great television that emotionally connects to the audience. 12 News puts a premium on winning breaking news coverage within shows that emphasize powerful video and clarity in storytelling and the strengths of veteran anchors with great chemistry.
To be successful, you must have a strong understanding and demonstrated proficiency in TV newscast production; a deep understanding of how to connect content to audiences; the ability to work unselfishly with teams in the creative process of brainstorming, developing, launching and sustaining quality programs; and a love and appreciation of all genres of television — news, dramas, comedies, reality and entertainment.
This is not show stacking, formula- focused, consultant-driven news producing. We want a producer committed to creating exceptional morning television.
Your stage will be new, state-of-the-art production facilities in downtown Phoenix. It’s a full, high definition production plant with multiple sound stages, outside sets, and abundant live remote technology.
Knowledge of Phoenix and Arizona as well as bilingual skills (Spanish) is extremely helpful in this position. We put a premium on personal integrity, teamwork, accountability, problem solving, a strong work ethic and winning.
A bachelor’s degree in journalism, film, fine arts, or equivalent.
Three to five years experience line producing in medium to large markets.
Strong leadership, writing and organizational skills.
An understanding of audience flow and meter strategy is needed.
Desktop video editing and graphics production skills using server-based digital video systems are required.
Please send non-returnable application material via mail delivery or web links – video samples, portfolio, and resume with references to:
