  • Digital News Producer

    At News 88.7, we strive to bring our audience strong, engaging content whether our audience finds that content on the air, on our website, or on social media.

    Our Digital News Producers work side-by-side with our radio producers, anchors and reporters to make original news content.

    Candidates must have prior experience as a journalist with a working knowledge of how broadcast news is produced and how digital content is created in a broadcast newsroom.

    Candidates must be familiar with writing styles for news websites and be proficient at effective headline writing, copy editing, embedding multi-media elements in posts, and ideally, be familiar with audio editing and broadcast news writing.

    Please share your resume and work at newsjob@houstonpublicmedia.org and you must apply on the University of Houston website.
