Senior Producer

FOX 13, the FOX Television Stations Owned & Operated Duopoly in Seattle, is seeking an experienced journalist and news producer to join our newsroom team as senior producer on "Good Day Seattle." The ideal candidate will be a skilled "rundown doctor" who likes to try something new every day and encourage others to do the same: dress up a lead story, get creative with weather coverage, dig for sidebar/breakout content, or utilize untapped resources to make each newscast pop.

The successful candidate should also be a terrific writer, with particular attention to lead writing, tease writing, and copy editing. The senior producer will not be assigned to a specific newscast on a regular basis but will help manage a strong line producing team elevate their game even more.

The successful candidate should have 5-7 years line producing in a mid to major media market. If you have good EP experience in a smaller market, that’s ok too! We are looking for a team player who is a champion of our daily journalism efforts. This role is focused primarily on the production of our weekday morning news block (weekdays 4:30-10 a.m.).

Education and Experience

  • 5 to 7 years of experience in a medium to major television market is preferred.
  • Bachelor’s degree in Communications, Journalism, Radio/TV, or related discipline preferred.

Physical Requirements

  • Prolonged periods sitting at a desk and working at a computer.
