KTRK-TV, The ABC/Walt Disney owned station located in Houston is looking for an Investigative Producer. We are a government-waste, corruption, document-driven office. We're looking for a self-starter, a digger, someone familiar and comfortable with open-records laws and a well-honed inability to accept the first no from a spokesperson. As a seasoned journalist, we will expect you to be a resource for and a good communicator with our news department. This is a job for a journalist; you will not be a glorified assistant to our Investigative Reporter.
Knowing your way around a City Hall, School Headquarters, and local government offices will make you stand out. TV experience (investigative/special projects) is an advantage, but if you are willing to learn, we're willing to teach. This is not a shooting/editing job; however we expect producers to know or learn the basics.
Digital skills beyond simply posting to social media and web sites are a huge plus. We're good at making TV; we need your help to make our investigative content stand out in a crowded online world.
What is non-negotiable is your ability to be a strong story-teller.
You will work independently and be expected to generate your own pitches turning them in to multi-platform reports. You will work with a reporter and photographer/editor. Sometimes they will be long-term projects, sometimes an investigative angle on breaking news.
