We’re hiring. One of our brilliant segment producers is moving on. We congratulate him and wish him the best -- but that doesn’t mean we’re going to let his seat get cold before we start working to fill it. If you’re interested, please email UpwithChris@msnbc.com and tell us about yourself. Use the subject heading “Segment Producer” so we can group them all together easily, please. Please do not attach resumes unless we contact you and ask for one.
What are we looking for? We’re looking for a writer/researcher/producer, preferably with experience in TV news. If you have no experience in writing/producing TV news you need to have an extremely strong background in another relevant field, such as politics/political science or print/online journalism. Please be advised this is not an entry-level job. We are looking for candidates who already have a strong sense of journalistic ethics and standards but are also capable of both creative thinking and of turning material around quickly under pressure. If you do not have experience in TV news, we'll need to see strong evidence that you possess the qualities we're looking for--so please send us links to videos you produced, stories you broke, analyses that made waves or other posts that might demonstrate your suitability for this job. Thanks and good luck.
Jonathan Larsen is the executive producer of Up w/ Chris Hayes. You can follow him on Twitter @JTLarsen.
