KIAH-TV in Houston is looking for an Assistant News Director to help manage all Newsroom operations by helping to guide and inspire a staff of over 50 people. We’re looking for someone who is ready for an incredible challenge. You will be a part of expanding and maintaining NewsFix, a unique, anchorless format changing attitudes and breaking the conventional news gathering mold. Newsfix is geared to be an aggressive, often opinionated cross device, cross platform solution for TV news by combining excellent story telling with great photography along with cutting edge graphics and sound design. The perfect candidate will be able to adapt to the format quickly and “getting it” is the key.
You must be a creative writer with sharp news judgment, have excellent digital and social media skills and be ready to apply that knowledge and experience to assist the News Director with daily news gathering and the overall creative vision of the show. We’re looking for someone who always has great ideas, knows current trends, technology and can collaborate well with others while maintaining order in a flexible content acquisition model.
So, if you have at least 7 years’ experience managing people and content in a large newsroom we want to hear from you. We’re looking for someone who can improve the playbook without re-writing it.
