You would join a dynamic, cooperative team that works together to bring important news and impactful stories to audiences in an intelligent way.
Every single day as a Producer is different! On any one day you might:

Create social media to support a story;
Deliver headlines as needed;
Collaborate with other ABC shows on a joint project or special feature;
Brainstorm story angles with your team;

Please apply if you have:
5 years of large-market or network-level television production experience;
The ability to supervise reporting and editing for magazine-length pieces;
The energy to juggle a full day of production and oversee the broadcast;
An adventurous spirit - you can lead your team and produce live remotes from any location;
Tenacity to pitch the stories you believe in, for any ABC news platform;
Experience performing under pressure - think breaking news-type situations;
Experience shooting and are proficient with DSLR cameras (i.e. C100, C300, Sony A7S models)
The reputation of being a jack-of-all-trades, jumping in to handle any task;
A knack for interruptive writing and savvy newsgathering; and
The finesse to lock-in key interviews and information.
It would also be nice if you are:
Familiar with radio and rough cutting pieces on Avid DV Express and Newscutter;
A pro at navigating through all stages of production - from pitch to air; and
Able to develop stories and visuals quickly and easily.
