Vermont PBS is launching a new Public Affairs & News initiative to tell Vermont’s most important stories through social media, online and broadcast television. We are seeking a Host to not only be the Face and Voice of this project but its chief architect as well.
This initiative will combine insightful analysis with compelling interviews to inform and engage Vermonters by covering issues that most affect Vermonters. Our objective is to present international, national and regional issues through a local perspective.
Our host will select the stories and shape the tone, style and structure of the show, using their own incisive commentary, compelling interview skills and a creative approach to analysis and storytelling. This position will be expected to generate creative and engaging segment ideas, research and write scripts, book guests, conduct interviews, and assure the overall accuracy of the content.
The ideal candidate is a self-starter who is plugged into the Vermont media community, can spot engaging stories, is constantly aware of the latest issues politically, socially and environmentally, and how to present them to a wide-ranging audience.
This position requires high journalistic standards as well as excellent storytelling, organization, verbal communication, writing, producing, editing, multitasking and time management skills. The ability to interact with guests and the community at large on a variety of subjects is essential.
