Assistant News Director

TEGNA Inc - Corpus Christi, TX

KIII-TV in Corpus Christi, TX has an immediate opening for an Assistant News Director.  This person will be responsible for the day-to-day running of the newsroom with the News Director.  The Assistant News Director will coordinate daily news coverage, have a passion for innovation, possess the ability to motivate and coach our reporting staff, and oversee content gathering across all platforms.  The ideal candidate must be a creative thinker willing to embrace challenges and understand how to leverage resources to win the day.  Special projects are also something the ideal candidate will have to tackle.  The Assistant News Director will understand what it means to “own” the big story, dominate severe weather coverage, and be the market leader in enterprise reporting.  You’ll also help the News Director with the development and execution of long-term newsroom strategy.  As a key member of our leadership team, we are seeking candidates with a vision for the future of news, emphasizing new technology, a digital-first approach, and creative storytelling.  People skills are a must—the Assistant News Director will have to work closely with other station departments to manage and solve challenges affecting the newsroom and news product.  You will also perform the duties of the News Director in his absence.  Prior newsroom management experience is required, along with at least 8 years of experience in television news.
