News Director - Casper

at Townsquare Media (View all jobs)

Casper, Wyoming, United States

Townsquare Media Casper is seeking a News Director to lead Wyoming’s premiere multimedia news team - online, on-air and on the scene. 

The News Director will have a passion for, and understanding of timely, multi-platform distribution of hyper-local news content. They will be able to deliver strong news reporting in a breaking news environment, and pivot to highly shareable, engaging material with a unique voice — always focused on the Casper area and the State of Wyoming. 

The News Director should be a strong leader and competitor, thrilled by the opportunity to lead and build a first-class multimedia newsroom. They will live and breathe community journalism and possess strong news judgment, an entrepreneurial spirit, and the ability to thrive in a deadline-intensive environment.

The person filling this role should understand what makes content on the web sticky, conversation-starting and good for SEO. Strong writing and reporting skills are essential; multimedia skills are highly valued. The ideal candidate will have a knack for writing social media copy that engages an audience. They understand that the work doesn’t stop after hitting publish on an article — effective content marketing through clever social teases, gripping newsletter subject lines and eye-grabbing mobile alerts builds an audience.

The News Director will work from the Townsquare Media Casper office, running the day-to-day news gathering operation, primarily for the K2 Radio brand – k2radio.com and 1030 AM. They will personally write articles and manage a team of full-time reporters. They will also write and produce recorded and live newscasts, of varying lengths, for Townsquare Media radio stations based on those news articles and the day’s trending national news topics. While a bonus, prior broadcast experience is not required. We are happy to train the right person in that area of our operation.

The News Director reports to the Director Of Content. 

Experience

  • 3-5 years experience in a broadcast, print or digital news organization

  • Leadership of a team of direct reports

  • Familiarity with digital publishing, SEO, and all major social media platforms

Responsibilities include:

  • Develop content ideas for the community based on news value, audience demand and search data

  • Write 4-5 articles per day, including breaking news, police and fire coverage, business news, features, aggregation and curated pieces of user-generated content

  • Generate clever, insightful material in non-traditional story forms (think Buzzfeed), with a strong, relatable voice

  • Maintain the news site’s social media accounts and nurture and grow an engaged audience

  • Create and send digital newsletter at least once per day

  • Manage the K2 Radio Mobile App push alert schedule and best practices

  • Manage the newsroom, assigning duties and coverage to Townsquare’s team of reporters

  • Work closely with the Director of Content and Digital Managing editor to develop broad 10,000-foot strategy, and day-to-day tactics

  • Work with Townsquare radio station teams to ensure breaking news content is distributed to the market’s radio station websites and social media channels

  • Write and produce on-air newscasts
