We are all about making stuff. New stuff. Mold-breaking stuff. And we are setting out to invent a new kind of news channel for a rising generation of news junkies. OTT. On all the time. Live news of the highest quality. Authentic. Voicy. Not extreme. No shouting allowed. Unexpected. Maybe even funny sometimes. But always informative and always stories well-told.
There are tens of millions of people who need the news but who don’t have cable. Inventing a new channel requires a new kind of voice. Creative, untethered to the tried and true but knows a best practice or two that’s worth following. Fearless, deeply journalistic, and a thoughtful story-teller.
If inventing the future of news sounds like a good reason to get out of bed and go to work in the morning, then take a look at the nitty gritty below and get in touch. Resumes are helpful, sure, but seeing your work is what it’s all about. And if your current body of work so far doesn’t paint the right picture of you, then make us something else. But hurry. We’ve got a lot to do.
The bulk of the job:
Pitch smart, relevant, and compelling stories
Shoot, write, and edit original videos
Crafting stories that are both powerful journalistically and fun to watch
Editing on Adobe Premiere or AVID
Shooting in the field with DSLR cameras
Working closely with correspondents and hosts
Finding voices that bring interesting perspectives to our network
