We are looking for a bright, energetic, creative Associate Producer who loves radio and knows a great story when they see one. The ideal Associate Producer is web savvy, with a proven track record in radio.
Who we are:
CBC Manitoba, like all of CBC’s regional centres, believes in the importance of content, community and internal culture.
As part of our team, you’d play a key role in focusing on these three priorities outlined in our Local Services strategy:
- Content: In this role, you will ensure that all CBC journalistic standards are met and that our stories are fair, balanced, accurate, thoughtful and immediate, and resonate with the communities we serve. You will further our original, enterprise and investigative storytelling and ensure we are talking about what matters most to people throughout Winnipeg and the rest of the province. You’re innovative and will try new things, new workflows and new story treatments. You inspire others to do the same.
- Community: As the industry shifts, local news and community storytelling is more important than ever. You will understand the diverse and changing population in Manitoba and the importance of reflecting all our communities in our content.
- Culture: You live and promote the values of diversity and an inclusive and respectful work culture.
This is what you’ll do:
- Pitch and produce stories.
- Write for CBC Radio’s Information Radio, Radio Noon, and Up to Speed.
- Write for our website.
- Interview people in the field, gather tape, mix sound.
- And if you sound good on radio… you’ll end up on air too.
We are looking for a candidate with the following:
- University degree or equivalent preferred.
- Two years of relevant experience preferred.
- You are passionate about your community.
