Good, part-time contract job for experienced radio producer. Can work from anywhere. Application deadline Dec. 1.
The WVR is an hour-long weekly newsmagazine that focuses on issues of poverty and justice worldwide, with a special emphasis on developing countries. The show tells personal stories of ordinary people through original, sound-rich segments.
Candidates must have excellent editing skills, the ability to present stories in fresh ways, and the willingness to develop collaborative relationships with reporters at different skill levels all over the world. We work mainly with reporters from English-speaking countries who are based abroad, but we’re also committed to cultivating local reporters in developing countries. Experience living and working abroad is a plus, but being well-informed and having an interest in other cultures and places are equally important.
The editor is responsible for contributing story ideas, shaping pieces with reporters, editing scripts, fact-checking and approving final mixes. The editor may also check show scripts, write billboards, review interviews and rough show mixes, and fill in for the show producer or assignment editor as needed. This is a part-time contract position that offers a competitive wage, flexible hours that vary by week, and no need to relocate.
The WVR is funded by the Christian humanitarian organization World Vision. The show values its editorial independence, and the views expressed on the show are not necessarily those of the organization.
The WVR airs on more than 100 public radio stations, and in six years has received a variety of national awards, including Edward R. Murrows, Gracies, Gabriels, New York Festivals and Clarions. To hear the show, go to www.worldvisionreport.org.
Please send a cover letter, resume and audio samples of radio pieces you have edited to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please write “Editor position” in your subject line. Only applicants with more than 8 years of public radio editing experience will be considered.
The deadline to submit applications is Dec. 1.
