Thanks to a generous grant from the Reva and David Logan Foundation,
Here And There with Dave Marash is hiring an associate producer.
H&T airs in-depth discussions of major news stories Monday-Thursday on KSFR-FM Santa Fe NM public radio, and is live-streamed and podcasted on KSFR.org, iTunes and PRX. During our first year on the air, our audience has grown every month, with downloads from 74 countries.
The Associate Producer will pull a clip from each 50-min interview on H&T and write an on-air intro and outro on deadline, 4 days per week. The AP's responsibilities also include: writing a 30 second promo and :55 billboard for each show, to be read and recorded by Dave Marash; writing a weekly newsletter for our listeners; producing links and supplemental digital content for use on the KSFR website and Here And There's social media. Managing and expanding a stronger social media presence is an important component of the job.
The Associate Producer job is part-time, 20 hrs/ week. The associate can be located anywhere, but knowledge of New Mexico and the Southwest or strong research talent and news sense about our region is essential. Our home office is in Tijeras, New Mexico; our listeners are in the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
We offer an opportunity for a highly motivated associate to expand his or her journalistic skill-set by suggesting and researching guest bookings, writing radio copy under the mentorship of a veteran, award-winning (DuPont, Overseas Press Club, 11 Emmys) broadcast journalist, and enterprising social media interactions to promote and expand our FM distribution and our podcast listenership.
Candidate will present a CV with references and writing sample or clips, and be available to interview in person or via SKYPE.
Qualifications are: strong interest in journalism, ability to write on deadline, familiarity with news of the world and the Southwestern US, facility for learning radio software programs, and the ability to manage a successful social media campaign.
