Supervising Producer at The Laura Flanders Show
This is a leadership position. The perfect candidate will need to have vision and determination, meaning that we are looking for someone to partner with Laura in taking this award-winning show to its next level. This is an ideal position for someone with a passion for producing original stories and unique discussions in studio and in the field. This is also an ideal position for someone who is embedded in intersectional Left politics and interested in expanding media discussion of issues such as climate change, capitalism, and art with that lens. The perfect candidate will be able to provide creative direction for the show, from mission to execution.
The Supervising Producer oversees weekly production while working closely with the executive producer (EP) on every aspect of the show. The ideal candidate will have extensive experience in producing original content for television and a successful track record of booking hard-to-get guests on deadline. Candidates need to have proof of effective team leadership skills. The ideal candidate is charismatic, determined and experienced overseeing a small team of committed editors, freelancers, videographers, as well as social media personnel working in the non-profit media sphere.
