Job Description
FOX Television Stations owns and operates 29 full power broadcast television stations in the US These include stations located in 14 of the top 15 largest designated market areas, or DMAs, and duopolies in 11 DMAs, including the three largest DMAs (New York, Los Angeles and Chicago). Of these stations, 18 are affiliated with the FOX Network. In addition to distributing sports, entertainment and syndicated content, our television stations collectively produce approximately 1,200 hours of local news every week. These stations leverage viewer, distributor and advertiser demand for the FOX Network's national content.


FOX 13, the FOX Television Stations Owned & Operated Duopoly in Seattle, is seeking an experienced journalist and news producer to join our newsroom team as senior producer on ''Good Day Seattle.'' The ideal candidate will be a skilled ''rundown doctor'' who likes to try something new every day and encourage others to do the same: dress up a lead story, get creative with weather coverage, dig for sidebar/breakout content, or utilize untapped resources to make each newscast pop.

The successful candidate should also be a terrific writer, with particular attention to lead writing, tease writing, and copy editing. The senior producer will not be assigned to a specific newscast on a regular basis but will help manage a strong line producing team elevate their game even more. We're looking for someone who can know the rundown(s) like the back of their hand and be able to make necessary changes as the morning unfolds – in a diplomatic way that endeavors to ensure all our bases remain covered.

The successful candidate should have 5-7 years line producing in a mid to major media market. If you have good EP experience in a smaller market, that's ok too! We are looking for a team player who is a champion of our daily journalism efforts. This role is focused primarily on the production of our weekday morning news block (weekdays 4:30-10 a.m.). However, the news business is a 24/7 world, and that schedule could change occasionally for various needs including vacation relief, holiday coverage, breaking news or other special events.

Required Skills and Abilities
• Decisive, authoritative leadership skills and the ability to build a strong team environment.
• Ability to integrate social media with broadcast television.
• Proficiency with MS Office including Outlook, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
• Strong verbal and written communication skills.
• Excellent problem-solving and critical-thinking skills.
• Ability to work under daily pressure and successfully manage multiple projects and deadlines.
• This is a full-time position on a regular shift, but the news is a 24/7 world and that could occasionally include other shifts as breaking news or other circumstances warrant.

Education and Experience
• 5 to 7 years of experience in a medium to major television market is preferred.
• Bachelor's degree in Communications, Journalism, Radio/TV, or related discipline preferred.

Physical Requirements
• Prolonged periods sitting at a desk and working at a computer.
• Regularly stand, walk, sit, reach with hands and arms, and talk or hear.
• Occasionally required to climb or balance and stoop, kneel, crouch, or crawl.
• Regularly lift and/or move up to 10 pounds.
• Vision abilities include close vision, distance vision, color vision, and ability to adjust focus.
