WMTV, the NBC-affiliate in Madison, Wis., has an immediate opening on our award-winning news team. Join the #1 rated and best team in the market as our next weekday, 5 and 9 p.m. news producer. We are looking for someone who can take our newscasts to the next level. This person will report to and work closely with the News Director and Executive Producer in shaping and ensuring the execution of our digital-first strategy on all platforms (website, social media, our news and weather apps, OTT and television). You must be an innovator, who can see the big picture, as well as someone who is a stickler for the details, writing conversationally (for TV) and with AP Style (for digital). Producing engaging and error-free work is the expectation here.

At WMTV, we work hard and take pride in getting it right. Our team was recently honored with back-to-back “News Operation of the Year” awards in 2020 and 2019 by the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association. This is a high-profile position that requires initiative, leadership and impact. You will contribute daily to elevating our newscasts and will be an ambassador—championing our community initiatives. You’ll work hard and find balance outside of work. Madison is consistently named one of the best places to live in America. We are conveniently just 1.5 hours from Milwaukee, 2.5 hours from Chicago and 5 hours from Minneapolis/St. Paul. Learn more about our wonderful station – WMTV – Madison, WI – Link –
