Job Summary:

Records, edits and contributes to development of content for podcasts. Possesses recording expertise in both studio and field environments. Collaborates with hosts and other vertical teams to achieve the highest standard of assets and deliverables for the company.

What the job entails:

iHeart is looking to fill two podcast producer roles. One of these roles will exclusively work on a podcast in partnership with PEOPLE, while the other will work on a number of shows in various stages of production. PEOPLE, the most essential media brand for celebrity, entertainment, and human interest, is launching a daily podcast, and this role will play a crucial role in defining the PEOPLE brand on audio. We’re looking for a production juggernaut: someone who’s comfortable listening to a ton of tape and stitching the gems together into cohesive and addictive shows. The job is super hands on, under the guidance of a supervising producer, you’ll manage hosts, shape stories, book guests, prep and outsource research, and work with a team to create sparkling audio. You’ll record in both studio and the field, and you’ll often take the first pass at shaping the story and mixing a recording. This is a rare opportunity to get in on the ground floor of an editorial-first shop that promises enormous reach and potential. We’re a small team in a large company, which means exciting work—and a lot of it. PEOPLE delivers exceptional content experiences on all platforms to over 100 million consumers every month, and has been a cultural force delivering storytelling and service that entertains and inspires for over four decades.

You should be detail-oriented, deadline-driven, growth-minded, and comfortable working in both a team and independently. You’ll have an eye for finding a compelling angle for any given subject, and an ability to tell a story both conversationally and creatively. An inclination to roll up your sleeves and solve problems—doing whatever is needed to get the job done—is essential.

You should have:

  • Minimum 2 years professional audio production experience

  • Exceptional organizational skills, ability to prioritize work, and a track record of turning around audio on a tight deadline

  • Ability to script and edit character-driven narrative, with an inclination to push boundaries and innovate

  • Comfort coaching a host through an interview

  • Proficiency in audio mixing

  • Proficiency with studio and field recording equipment and hardware

  • Ability to work in Adobe Audition, as well as Apple OS and related software

  • Knowledge of sound recording and ability to troubleshoot in studio and field environments

  • Creativity to make the most of limited resources

  • Eagerness to take direction and grow in the position

  • Efficiency and grace under tight deadlines
