Walt Disney Television Producer (ABC Nightline) in New York, New York

You would join a dynamic, cooperative team that works together to bring important news and impactful stories to audiences in an intelligent way.

Every single day as a Producer is different! On any one day you might:

  • Research news and online chatter to find stories that need a bigger voice (yours!);

  • Develop and book magazine-length stories that will keep viewers engaged throughout;

  • Work the logistics for a complex remote shoot;

  • Travel to where the story is, gathering elements and footage as you go;

  • Create social media to support a story;

  • Deliver headlines as needed;

  • Collaborate with other ABC shows on a joint project or special feature;

  • Brainstorm story angles with your team;

  • Connect with your career mentor; and

  • Attend a team bowling night, or watch a Disney movie or TV show screening!

Please apply if you have:

  • 5 years of large-market or network-level television production experience;

  • The ability to supervise reporting and editing for magazine-length pieces;

  • The energy to juggle a full day of production and oversee the broadcast;

  • An adventurous spirit - you can lead your team and produce live remotes from any location;

  • Tenacity to pitch the stories you believe in, for any ABC news platform;

  • Experience performing under pressure - think breaking news-type situations;

  • Experience shooting – and are proficient with DSLR cameras (i.e. C100, C300, Sony A7S models)

  • The reputation of being a jack-of-all-trades, jumping in to handle any task;

  • A knack for interruptive writing and savvy newsgathering; and

  • The finesse to lock-in key interviews and information.

It would also be nice if you are:

  • Familiar with radio and rough cutting pieces on Avid DV Express and Newscutter;

  • A pro at navigating through all stages of production - from pitch to air; and

  • Able to develop stories and visuals quickly and easily.

  • Strong preference that candidates are experienced with doc-style scene shooting, as well as proficient in lighting and shooting (audio included) their own sit-down producer interviews.

Bachelor’s Degree or equivalent experience. Let’s be honest: In today’s world, there are many places you can produce hard news. So why not use your producing skills at a show that has not only won a multitude of awards, but has broadcast – live – from both the foot of Mt. Everest and the interior of Antarctica?

Being a producer at ABC’s Nightline allows you to focus on what matters most – delivering breaking news stories, timely interviews and incisive investigative reports to an intelligent, thoughtful audience.

We’re a seasoned, tight crew who collaborate to make sure that all of the pieces are in place for a successful news show, night after night. We are known for creating impactful, thought-provoking stories in a range of genres and subjects.
