Well, a producer/host/blogger:


POSITION: Executive Producer / News Editor / Host


TVW – Washington Public Affairs Network – is offering a unique and challenging career opportunity for a professional communicator. TVW is looking for an Executive Producer to oversee the content and creative direction of the network’s produced programming.

Not only does TVW’s Executive Producer get the opportunity to consistently do in-depth reporting on substantive issues, but this position is also a civics educator responsible for maintaining TVW’s meticulous reputation for trusted, unbiased, politically balanced coverage.

Specific responsibilities include:
– Producing, writing and hosting a weekly public affairs news magazine program
– Writing, editing, managing and promoting the network’s news blog
– Creating, writing and coordinating production of on-air promotions
– Developing additional issue-oriented documentary programming

The position requires energy, innovation and leadership; a strong working knowledge of television; the ability to write, edit, report and make news judgments – all under tight deadlines; and the temperament to work cooperatively and positively with others while under pressure.

A minimum of two years’ television experience and a degree in communications, broadcast journalism or a related field is required. Washington state public policy expertise or experience is preferred.

To apply, submit résumé, cover letter and demo DVD – by Oct. 3 – to Mike Bay, VP of Programming, TVW, P.O. Box 25, Olympia, WA 98507-0025 or email mikeb@tvw.org. EOE.

In my perfect world, they’d split up the job of host/producer and blogger into two jobs. It probably has to do with budget constraints, but the job of a blogger and broadcast person are two different jobs.

Well, maybe someday.
