Job Description


We are looking for an experienced producer with excellent communication skills to join Fox News Primetime as a Line Producer. As the Line Producer, your main responsibility each day will be translating the editorial ''vision'' for the show into an organized rundown and overseeing its live production on air. This includes building the rundown, making timing decisions, and managing producer assignments. You must be assertive, detail-oriented, and a natural self-starter. You're also an active consumer of news with impeccable judgment and unrivaled organizational skills. Most of all, you must be an effective communicator who can serve as the main point of contact for producers during the day and talent/crew during the broadcast. You should be able to improvise and make smart decisions on-the-fly in a way that inspires the people around you to follow your lead.

This is the perfect opportunity for an aspiring leader looking to sharpen their management skills and contribute to the launch of a brand new show!

• Manage producer assignments and provide editorial guidance
• Check copy, lower thirds, etc., raise red-flags early and offer solutions
• Handle all aspects of pre-production (pretaped segments, package approval, reporter scripts)
• Write/copy edit scripts as needed

During the show:
• Guide the technical crew through each element of the show using calm & clear instructions
• Keep the host on time using clear & effective cues
• Monitor the aesthetics of the screen to make sure visuals support the conversation
• Manage your own time and attention; prioritize and delegate tasks when necessary

• 2-4 years of prior television (or similar) experience
• Experience in a live control room
• Experience interacting with high profile talent
• Exceptional editorial skills; ability to recognize stories and elements with high potential for compelling television
• Effective communication skills; ability to provide clarity and reassurance in high pressure situations
• Passion for organization; ability to simplify complicated tasks under pressure
• Solid base of technical skills (specifically newsroom and video editing software)
• Strong interest/knowledge of current events and politics
• Willingness to listen, learn and grow from constructive criticism

• Bachelor's degree in television, journalism, or a related field
• Understanding of audience analytics and strategies for ratings growth
