Slate is hiring a producer to join the tightknit, scrappy team pioneering Slate’s daily news podcast What Next.
We’re looking for someone who loves the news and has an audio background. Maybe you’ve taught yourself how to edit audio because you got obsessed with radio stories. Maybe you found yourself drawn to podcasts because they offered a bit more intimacy than radio. You don’t have to be a journalism school graduate, but you should be a student of the news, examining how different outlets attack the same story. You are not exhausted by this news cycle—you are energized by it.
The right person for this job can deal with change—our show is still in its first year, and it’s still evolving. You don’t take yourself seriously, but you’re passionate about the work. You’re kind and generous with your colleagues, but you can articulate your concerns and solve problems as they crop up.
And lastly, what we really want is a producer who knows that this job isn’t merely a stepping stone. You’re committed to making What Next fantastic. This is a great opportunity to help shape a show in its infancy, and you want to know what that’s like.
This is a position covered under a collective bargaining agreement between Slate and the Writers Guild of America East.
Slate is committed to excellence through diversity, which involves attracting talented people from diverse backgrounds and traditions. We encourage everyone to apply.To apply, please send your résumé and cover letter to email@example.com. Please include What Next Producer in your subject line.
