Podcast and Video Producer
We are launching a podcast and we need an up-and-coming volunteer producer to make it work!
The Commoner is a non-profit, non-partisan news outlet dedicated to reflecting the opinions and concerns of the common people. The Commoner discusses political, economic, and social issues in a respectful and open-minded manner. We cover local, national, and international news. We produce conventional reporting as well as opinion pieces, discussion pieces, and educational resources for teachers and scholars.
The Producer will volunteer up to 6 hours each week (flexible schedule) to help develop and execute Commoner's new podcast and our videos for our news site. As a producer, you would be involved in editing footage, setting the musical and stylistic tone of the podcast, and developing the best news product for our listeners.
PREFERED KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS, AND ABILITIES
- Basic understanding of editing software and podcast production software.
- Ability to work with raw recordings of news and to pick out the most important aspects of a story.
- Basic understanding of how podcasts work as a genre.
- Creative vision and unique sense of style for our brand.
- Ability to work with a team of journalists.
You will be able to grow into the role, so you do not have to be an expert. Working knowledge of the software and a desire to learn will be acceptable.
About The Commoner
30 N Gould St, Sheridan, WY 82801, US
Our mission to bring compassion and common ground to the media. We do not believe that political parties or the mainstream media accurately represent the average person. We hope to give people a voice to develop as a journalist and train people without traditional resources to be successful in the media world.
The Commoner is a non-profit, non-partisan news outlet dedicated to reflecting the opinions and concerns of the common people. The voices of those who fall outside of elite - the majority - are often drowned out in a global media landscape dominated by big money and political polarization. The Commoner serves as a platform for these voices By covering local, national, and international news. We also promote sports journalism and community discussions. Lastly, we will eventually launch an educational project to teach young people how to become journalists for free.
