Colorado Public Radio is hiring a producer for Colorado Matters, our award-winning daily interview program. We're looking for someone who loves to dig into issues, find the human side of policy debates, and explore a range of topics - politics, environment, energy, education, health care, business, arts and culture.
This producer finds potential sources for the host to interview using high-level reporting to understand issues and identify best guests, prepares the host with script and background materials and helps to guide live interviews.
He/she attends all necessary Colorado Matters/CPR News meetings and contributes to the daily flow of ideas that keep our show fresh, lively, accurate and transformative. The working environment is highly collaborative and open to new ideas.
The producer will also prepare, edit and post digital materials to CPR’s web site. He or she will serve as the point person for Colorado Matters’ digital production.
Colorado is a great state to live in. We look at the Rocky Mountains from the newsroom. Denver is ranked amongst the top cities for bike trails, has a world-renowned art museum, and strong theater and music scenes. Skiing, hiking, mountain biking, etc. are all nearby, and we have stunning weather that makes it easy to get outdoors year-round.
