Writer / Producer - Newsroom
New York, NY
Turner Services Inc. seeks a Community Manager for the NewsCo department.
CNN is the world's most essential and engaging source of video and digital news, and we're embarking on a crucial mission to invent the next generation news and information experiences online.
You'll be joining an empowered cross-functional team building the trusted new digital products, platforms, and formats that put CNN's talent, expertise, and content programming-and the directions it goes next-directly in the hands of consumers. The Internet is changing the news and information landscape, and we have an ambitious product roadmap grounded in journalism and facts. We have a unique ability to marry content, design, product, and technology to spark connection, fulfill utility, and build community. We're looking for someone intimately familiar with emerging platforms to serve as a Community Moderator for a new interactive news product.
The Community Moderator will be expected to moderate audience submissions before, during, and after live programming, as well as for an ongoing forum. They will collaborate with product, design, and research to develop new community strategies and features. They will also work closely with our video production team to make sure each live event goes off without a hitch.
Experience working in journalism or on interactive content projects is preferred. Experience running online communities is welcome, but we expect to train the Community Moderator in the basics and advanced applications of online community management.
CNN is committed to pushing our industry to become more diverse and inclusive and to address issues of fairness and bias in all that it builds. We welcome people from all backgrounds and are especially interested in non-traditional candidates.
