Full Time

Love the adrenaline rush of working in broadcast news, but hate the long hours and limited upside? Excited by the energy and fast-pace behind the set and in the control room? Does covering and analyzing breaking news give you a thrill?

If you’re thinking leaving the TV and radio business, but yearn to remain within broadcast and news then we want you. Put your talents, savvy, and network of contacts to use for a variety of top-tier organizations—from Fortune 500 companies to large, internationally known asset managers to private equity firms, activist investors and others.

As an award-winning, highly regarded New York-based public relations and communications agency, we seek an experienced, high-energy professional to direct and grow our broadcast operations.

This is a great opportunity that offers the excitement of working at the networks without the 24/7 demands of broadcast journalism in a friendly, non-corporate environment.

Your responsibilities would include: developing themed segments and booking interviews for agency clients on national financial TV and radio networks; building and maintaining excellent relations with on-air talent, producers and guest bookers; media coaching; message development and building narratives; client management and counseling (both on-site at the studio, as well as off-line), and written client correspondence. Ability to juggle multiple clients, work on deadline, and take the initiative are musts, and a good sense of humor is always a plus.

Our ideal candidate has a minimum of 5-7 years of national network broadcast experience with a good understanding of business and finance. We are especially interested in producers, guest bookers, on-air talent and copywriters who come from a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment. PR agency candidates that have proven high-level broadcast management and experience will also be considered.

Very competitive, 6-figure salary is commensurate with experience. Benefits--medical, dental, vision, and 401(k) with match and profit-sharing.

If this position sounds intriguing to you (and it should!) please send your resume with a cover letter telling us why. We look forward to hearing from you.
