Meet NHPR's Creative Production Unit

NHPR's Creative Production Unit (CPU) is the place where innovative ideas percolate, emerging trends flourish, audiences engage, and great audio and journalism meet. The 9-person team of producers, reporters, and digital creators work together to produce NHPR's podcasts Outside/In and Civics 101, the local program Word of Mouth, and the Hearken-fueled series "Only In New Hampshire." The CPU is an editorial, production, and digital resource for NHPR's News department, and producers and reporters often collaborate on stories, series, and special projects.

 

About the Job

NHPR's Creative Production Unit, newsroom, and production teams thrive on collaboration, and we're looking for a creative, ambitious, self-motivated audio journalist with sensibilities that bridge narrative and news. The Senior Producer will lead the production of new on-demand projects across content teams, while also bringing ideas and a strong editorial ear to our existing CPU shows and podcasts.

  • Guarantee the on-time, flawless delivery of audio to multiple platforms.
  • Work independently, while also pitching in on your fellow producers' projects.
  • Contribute, as appropriate, to on-air and podcast fundraising activities.
