KOAA Television, the Cordillera-owned, consistent #1 NBC affiliate in Colorado Springs/Pueblo, CO is looking for a Full time Content Producer with the ability to produce a fast paced newscast, with multiple live shots, taking full advantage of brand new state of the art set and a newly redesigned website. We are looking for a true producer, not a show stacker; an aggressive individual with the creativity and confidence to leave their fingerprints on their shows. You must be able to think and act quickly, perform under pressure, write crisp, accurate, compelling copy as well as bumps and teases that give viewers a reason to watch. You need to be a proactive team player who coordinates with field crews and managers throughout the day to create the best possible product.
Colorado Springs/Pueblo is not just a breathtakingly beautiful place to live, work, and play. It's a highly competitive market with frequent breaking news and continuous coverage situations.
You must have excellent grammar, spelling and punctuation skills and a keen attention to detail. A key part of the job is writing for the Web and social media, so experience with online platforms including Facebook and Twitter is a major plus.
A college degree in journalism or a related field is required and at least two years of TV and/or online journalism experience is preferred. For consideration, e-mail a resume and cover letter to email@example.com. EOE
