NOTICE OF EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY
Digital Content Manager
Are you currently a digital content specialist with dreams of creative grandeur – but your days are spent working in an uninspiring, beige cubicle? Do you dream of a challenging position in digital journalism where the world’s most spectacular and breath-taking scenery can be found right outside your office window… and your weekends are filled with hiking, biking, internationally renowned sightseeing or even extreme sports? If so, KTUU in Anchorage, Alaska may be looking for you!
The market's leading media company is seeking a dynamic, entrepreneurial, digitally-focused leader to expand our online, mobile and social efforts. The right candidate will have demonstrated abilities to both grow audiences and revenue, and have a track record showing leadership, people skills and achievement.
The Digital Content Manager will balance his/her efforts between daily content and business development. In other words, working with editorial teams to set and achieve audience goals, while also working with sales teams to help achieve revenue goals.
The Digital Content Manager reports to the News Director, but will work side-by-side with Sales and Marketing on a daily basis. KTUU-TV is looking for an infectious personality, who can create and communicate a digital vision, then roll-up his/her sleeves to help make it a reality. You will be assisted editorially by the award-winning Channel 2 News team, and you will directly oversee a small but highly productive digital team. Your primary daily mission is to manage content across all of KTUU-TV's digital platforms and to continue to develop and support a fast-growing audience in collaboration with our talented multi-platform workforce.
The Digital Content Manager will also look for ways to blend the power of technologies and inter-connected audiences, in collaboration with KTUU-TV's other television and digital partners, both in Alaska and across other Schurz Communications platforms. Our goal is to create unique experiences in all mediums absent of silos. If you're the kind of person who can help us delight and serve users, viewers, subscribers and advertisers, you're the right person for this important digital leadership assignment. ¿¿
