The Senior Producer brings a strong journalism background to State of Nevada (SON). Candidates must come to the job with a deep knowledge of the stories, history and issues, big and small, that shape Las Vegas and the state.

The candidate must know who the political, business, social and civic leaders are in the state. Who is Nevada’s superintendent of public instruction? What’s been the impact of covid-19? What’s the history of BnB legislation in Las Vegas? What’s the difference between Las Vegas and Clark County?

The Senior Producer creates radio and online content that is relevant, accurate, up to date, engaging, and technically sound. The Senior Producer must be able to judge the efficacy and interest of story ideas from a team of producers who cover the entire state. He or she must be able to suggest additional sources, if needed, and help develop those segments for the State of Nevada program. While managing, must also have demonstrated ability to work well with others.

A demonstrated ability to “write for the ear” is crucial. And as Nevada Public Radio develops more avenues of outreach, skills with podcast production would be helpful.

In addition, the Senior Producer contributes to Nevada Public Radio’s online and social media efforts—writing articles for, and assisting with KNPR News’ social media (Twitter, Facebook, online discussions, etc.) as well as working with the Desert Companion team to converge editorial content for Nevada Public Radio.

This position manages the SoN Team and reports to the News Director.
