Digital Content Producer
It’s fun to work in a company where people truly believe in what they are doing!
We’re hiring a Digital Content Creator to be part of our next-level team at WJZY/WMYT, Queen City News in Charlotte, NC. Reporting to the Digital Content Manager, the Digital Content Creator will be laser-focused on telling stories that matter most to digital and social users– and doing it better than anyone else.
Does this sound like you? You’re smart, fast on your feet, team-oriented, and full of energy. You’re an expert in digital and social media platforms. You know a big story when you hear it. You’re obsessed with details. Nothing gets past you. You have a zero-tolerance policy for grammatical errors. You could copy-edit in your sleep (but you won’t— we promise). You love a fast-paced, challenging environment and crave the chance to learn new things. You’ve got goals, which you strive to meet and exceed (all of them). You thrive in a competitive, fearless culture of creativity and expertise. What you do matters, and you’re out to make a difference. Most of all, you want to win. Every. Single. Day.
Responsibilities include: Creating compelling, UX-focused content related to news, events, and topics relevant to local users and beyond, including text stories, photos/graphics, live streaming content, breaking news, and social media elements.

Reach and engage users on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat, and beyond. Work with Group Content Team and other FTS markets to distribute high-interest stories at scale. Follow group standards. Monitor real-time analytics. Other duties as deemed necessary and assigned.
The person we’re looking for lives and breathes digital news and information, and is driven by an intense passion for storytelling. If that’s you, your dream team awaits.
3+ years’ experience developing and publishing content, including news, on digital and social platforms preferred.
BA/BS degree, preferably in Journalism, Communications, or a related field with an emphasis on digital publishing. Excellent writer and storyteller. Superior news judgment. Impeccable writing and copy-editing skills. Overwhelming attention to detail. Thrive under deadline pressure. Stellar communication skills. Social media expert.
