Senior Producer - The Brian Lehrer Show

Company: New York Public Radio
Location: New York
Posted on: March 13, 2018

Job Description:

The Brian Lehrer Show, WNYC's flagship newstalk program, seeks an innovative leader to partner with Brian and the team to create the daily, live 10am-noon show and related digital content. The Senior Producer directs the live show, and is responsible for the show being booked and prepared each day. As well, the Senior Producer oversees a substantial amount of administrative, digital, and social media work. They will report to and work closely with the head of live radio.
The Senior Producer sets the standard for integrating top tier journalistic judgment with being highly audience-oriented. We aim to create meaning, community connection, an informed and engaged public, all in the context of a vibrant experience for the listener. The successful candidate will be equally prepared to lead the journalistic and creative dynamics of the show, as well as aiming to build community across demographic lines.
The show prides itself on always seeking to do things better than we've done them before. The successful candidate will be the best-equipped to partner with Brian in being continually ambitious in these ways to keep the show sounding fresh, original, and on the move. The senior producer will have fresh ideas about the presentation of the show across platforms, and about how to organize the team and the production process.
A live daily show is a wheel that never stops turning. The senior producer needs to set a comfortable, collaborative tone in the office as well as in the studio. The senior producer should be ambitious but calm. The right person will want to change the show at any point to make it more responsive to the world and to the listeners, but also knows how to create balance. Breaking news leadership is also integral to the position. The successful candidate will be flexible, resourceful, fast on their feet, and cool under pressure. The senior producer is (within reason) on call after hours and on weekends, as circumstance calls for making changes to the next days show.
Finally, the successful candidate will lead by being an ultimate team player. Our team has a long history of interdepartmental collegiality, supporting the membership department, the news department, The Greene Space, and others as they support us. We place great value on being good workplace citizens, always asking "how can we help?" Internally, the show is lucky to have a long history of cooperative, mutually supportive staff members and managers who value kindness and decency and generosity of spirit to each other as first principles, as we work with our colleagues toward common goals.
If you think you are the best-equipped to lead at the intersection of what's important to the world, creativity in making radio, audience awareness and growth, fast-moving live situations and a supportive workplace culture, we welcome your application for this position.
