Are you a Freakonomics freak? WNYC is looking for a new producer to help bring the hidden side of everything to public radio. You’ll work on the production of Marketplace segments, podcasts, Web content, live events and hour-long programs, hosted by Stephen Dubner, co-author of Freakonomics and SuperFreakonomics.
As the producer, you’ll collaborate with Dubner and the executive producer to generate themes and story ideas for the program, while serving as a liaison for the Freakonomics Radio project with Marketplace headquarters in Los Angeles. You’ll also organize guest interviews, edit program content and ensure that editorial goals are met.
To be considered, you’ll need at least five years of journalism, radio and reporting experience, working on a daily or weekly deadline. Naturally, you’ll need to be familiar with the Freakonomics books, blog and podcast, and have an ability to generate rare story ideas. The deadline for this gig is January 6, so hurry and apply here.
