This is far from your everyday opportunity! Newstalk ZB is looking for a producer for the Mike Hosking Breakfast show. Here’s your chance to be part of a team that is proud to put together New Zealand’s No.1 breakfast show. This is way more than just arranging interviews, it is setting the day’s news agenda.
You’ll have the ability to move stories on, thanks to a great understanding of local and international news. Your challenge will be to present the day’s news in a way that engages our audience. We expect interviews that will make people late for work, because they just can’t stop listening! Working for Mike Hosking Breakfast requires flexibility, and the ability to adapt to sometimes rapidly changing scenarios and the ability to think on your feet. You’ll also need to be happy to take direction, but be equally able to back your own decisions.
This is a challenging yet supportive environment, where you will be given regular feedback, and the opportunity to learn from one of the best interviewers in the country. This role would also give you the skills to see news from a broader perspective, and have input into how a whole show comes together. Production experience isn’t necessary, but a good attitude is. You will need a background in journalism, and preferably broadcasting experience.
And in return NZME offers a culture second to none, where we live and breathe our values to be curious, connected and confident – meaning we tell it like it is, dare to try, challenge the status quo and love some fun along the way. We’re housed in world class facilities in central Auckland and we value growth & development, reward and recognition.
