Job Description
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.

JOB DESCRIPTION

FOX 13 and FOX 13+, the FOX Television Stations Owned & Operated duopoly in Seattle, WA is seeking an experienced newscast director to direct various live programs. The successful candidate will be in the hot seat during newscasts, sports shows and other live programming as warranted – using Ross Automation, iNews, Chyron and other broadcast software and hardware. The director will direct specific shows regularly, while assisting or backing up other shows on the same shift – whether as an AD, audio operator or other role. Other daily duties will include prepping the studio for live broadcasts, maintaining audio equipment like mics and IFB's, and envisioning creative ways to use our studios and control rooms.

Directors at FOX 13 are leaders and collaborators on our news team. The successful candidate will communicate well under pressure. The control room setting can be hectic at times, but the right director is always calmly in control. Must have experience directing live daily newscasts on an automation system, and be comfortable during unscripted moments like breaking news or other live events. This is a full-time, regular shift, but the news business is a 24/7 world and schedules can occasionally change due to vacation relief, breaking news, or other staffing requirements.

At FOX, we foster a culture and environment where everyone feels welcome and can thrive. We are deeply committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion, including attracting, retaining, and promoting diverse talent across our company. We live in a diverse world, with different ideas and different perspectives that come together to spark new ideas and make great things happen. That means reflecting the diversity of the world around us is critical to our company's success. We ensure that our viewers, communities and employees feel heard, represented, and celebrated both on screen and off.
