It's a great opportunity - a brand new job opening at FRONTLINE!
Here's the official description: "The Podcast Producer will produce stories for The FRONTLINE Dispatch, FRONTLINE’s new documentary podcast. They will nurture story ideas from conception to completion and be responsible for a variety of editorial tasks. In addition to reporting stories of their own, they will also be responsible for collaborating with other reporters and producers in our newsroom as well as commissioning original reporting from journalists around the world. Their role will include conducting or overseeing research, planning, field recording, interviewing, script writing, editing, directing narration, mixing, fact checking and all other aspects of editorial production. They will also be responsible for helping to strategize on the editorial direction of the podcast and will liaise as appropriate with FRONTLINE departments such as Audience Engagement, Digital, Business etc." http://www.wgbh.org/about/employmentOpportunities.cfm.
They're looking ideally for someone with long-form narrative radio experience," I'm told, so that sounds like a great job for new and exciting production! If you have questions, I can probably connect you to someone in the know, but you do have to apply online. - Judith
