Fox Television Stations is one of the nation's largest owned-and-operated network broadcast groups, comprising 29 stations in 18 markets and covering over 37% of US television homes. This includes seven duopolies in the top 10 markets: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, San Francisco, Washington, DC and Houston; as well as duopolies in Minneapolis, Phoenix, Orlando and Seattle.
We're hiring a Digital Content Director to oversee our Group Content Team (GCT), serving all 17 FTS markets with unique, high-quality content for digital and social platforms. Reporting to the VP/Digital Content Operations, the Digital Content Director will lead and inspire a team of digital content creators producing compelling, user-focused content for our stations' digital platforms. We tell stories that truly matter to users around the country- and we do it better than anyone else can.
Does this sound like you? You're smart, driven, quick-thinking, resourceful, full of energy and have a deep passion for what you do. You've got goals. You're (extremely) competitive and want to win. All the time. You're a proven, compassionate leader who motivates others to make a real difference. Your journalistic standards are high, and so is the bar you set for your team. You're obsessed with quality and serving the audience in the best possible way. You pivot quickly and keep your cool when things get tough. When it comes to supporting your team, there's nothing you love more-and you celebrate their wins in victorious fashion.
The powerhouse leader we're looking for is a self-proclaimed news junkie, knows digital platforms inside and out, and has a track record of taking teams to new heights. If that's you, we can't wait to meet you!
