WLWT TV, the Hearst-owned NBC affiliate in Cincinnati, is looking for a Dayside Executive Producer who can oversee fast-paced newscasts in an even faster-paced news market. We need a driven, organized leader who can articulate a vision for our shows and lead a team towards the vision. The right candidate will be a leader who can develop multi-platform content that succeeds on air, on mobile, and on social media. Responsibilities include the ability to manage, coach, and motivate a team of producers, reporters, anchors, and photojournalists who are committed to excellence.
