EP of Podcast - Digital (Digital Content Strategy)

Digital Division Washington D.C., District Of Columbia


Description

Position at Al Jazeera Media Network

Summary:

Al Jazeera's audio division is hiring an Executive Producer to expand The Take, its feature news and public affairs podcast.

The Executive Producer will lead a talented and diverse team of audio producers within a network that covers the world like nobody else, building what is now a weekly host-led, interview-driven show into a five-day-a-week production.

The EP will shape the direction of a show that creatively combines the journalism of correspondents and documentary teams with original reporting.

This is a full-time job offering competitive pay and benefits at Al Jazeera's North American headquarters in Washington, D.C.

 The right candidate has:

  • Ten years' experience in an editorial oversight role
  • A talent for leading teams and building operational workflows
  • International news experience and broad knowledge about and interest in world affairs
  • Proficiency in Adobe Audition
  • A creative mind and a desire to push the boundaries of what audio can do

There is much to be excited about here: A workplace that's truly diverse and focused on covering the world. The editorial freedom to cover stories that matter — and matter to you. The opportunity to fill a gap in our current podcast landscape with a feature audio show that actually covers the globe. The chance to lead a remarkable team of producers who are just as excited about telling great stories as you are.

While we want someone who understands and has experience in the audio/podcast world, it's most important that you have deep news experience and sharp editorial judgment, and that you're a thoughtful and effective leader. We're always excited to hear from candidates whose backgrounds and life experiences bring further diversity to the team.
