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.

STUDIO ENGINEERS

WHAT THEY DO: Studio engineers are responsible for operating all of the equipment necessary for the production of a program. This includes the studio cameras, the audio console, studio lighting, the video switcher, and in some stations, the character generator and the electronic still-storage graphics display equipment.

REQUIREMENTS: More often than not, a technical background, including education is required for this position. The Society of Broadcast Engineers offer classes and certification programs that are recognized for many engineering positions.

TRAFFIC DIRECTOR

WHAT THEY DO: A station's traffic manager collects data from other departments in order to prepare a minute-by-minute schedule for the broadcast day. The traffic person is the daily link between the sales department and programming department, keeping up-to-date commercial time availability.

REQUIREMENTS: Many stations are willing to train their entry-level traffic/programming staff. Nonetheless, candidates should have completed high school, have broadcast experience and be very well-organized.
