Youth Radio has entered an exciting period of growth, and we want you to join us.
We are looking for talented individuals to be part of the creation of our national network, working side by side with youth and top professionals in the fields of journalism, arts, and technology.
The Managing Editor is responsible for creating a workflow that integrates the best of YR content in-house and from our national network and delivers it to our growing audience, through our new digital platform and brand. S/he has experience working with different content teams and integrating numerous channels under one brand. As part of the executive content team, s/he facilitates the development of compelling journalistic and arts content.
Producer, Daily Content + Features
YR Producer of Daily Content and Features will create memorable, shareable stories across a variety of digital formats that engage, inspire, inform, and move YR audiences. We seek candidates who are equally energized by a same-day deadline for a social story as they are by the chance to program a steady flow of content on a beat over time. We’re looking for someone obsessed with driving conversation that matters for young people (ages 18-28) who are socially engaged, civically curious, and creating cultures of their own. The Producer should love experimenting with new formats across platforms and know how to stoke and track community engagement. The Producer will develop their own original content (heavily visual–video, photo, etc.) and co-create with young reporters, opinion writers, and artists who have unforgettable stories to tell.
