The Southern California News Group is looking for web-savvy journalists who embrace technology, can write headlines that win audiences on Facebook, love to imagine creative ways we can use the web to tell stories and know what modern news presentation ought to look like on a mobile device.
We’re pretty proud of our journalism -- from investigations that win Pulitzer Prizes to breaking news that outpaces our competitors. What we need are some clever digital producers to pull it all together into top-quality presentation for SCNG’s 11 sites, including the Orange County Register and LA Daily News. Producers help our journalism reach its widest audience, including sharpening headlines, curating mobile feeds/home pages and packaging content that engages our audience with immersive storytelling, interactive graphics, photos and videos. #scng #Associate
In this job, you should be able to apply a deep understanding of search and social user behavior to help our work be surfaced on those platforms. Breaking news is a top priority, as well as being able to manage push and email alerts as needed. You will be asked to look at analytics to spot opportunities and think strategically about how to take advantage of them.
You will use news editing skills to curate national news of the day for home and section pages, as well as finding the best content from our regional network of newsrooms and other sources relevant to our audience. You might create a newsletter or compile a feed for an Alexa skill.
Our digital producers are often the first and only read on stories during overnight and early morning shifts, and should have the requisite news judgment and editing skills to run the show responsibly.
