careers in Broadcasting in Hawaii

There're plenty of opportunities in front and  behind the mic.

EXECUTIVE PRODUCER

WHAT THEY DO: As a newsroom leader, the executive producer must demonstrate strong news judgment, be able to develop creative story ideas and work with producers and reporters to execute those plans. EPs coordinate the content and presentation of broadcasts under the direction of the managing editor and news director.

REQUIREMENTS: Executive producers have a great deal of experience in the newsroom. Usually, a 4 year degree in Journalism, Communications or related field is required along with experience in news producing and newsroom management.

STATION MANAGER

WHAT THEY DO: A station manager is the chief operating officer of the station. The station manager must have effective personnel management skills and a thorough knowledge of all aspects of broadcast operation. REQUIREMENTS: This is not an entry-level position and requires a good deal of broadcast experience, knowledge of station operations and financial management as well as a higher education.

NEWS REPORTERS

WHAT THEY DO: The key "front-line" people in the news department are the beat reporters. They are on-the-scene at every kind of event, and larger organizations may compartmentalize assignments, such as health reporter, education reporter, entertainment reporter, etc.

Local news reporters must be excellent writers, capable of working quickly and accurately to sum up the key elements of a news story and make it understandable and relevant to the audience. In today's new media, reporters must be able to write to all digital media, including social networks.

REQUIREMENTS: Often reporters can enter smaller markets before they have completed their degree in broadcast journalism. Nonetheless, a college degree will be necessary to move onto larger markets and more responsibility.
