Raycom Media, Inc.
Cleveland19 in (appropriately) Cleveland, Ohio is looking for its next News Director. Cleveland19 is the brand name for the content we put on our CBS affiliate WOIO, our MyNetwork station WUAB, cleveland19.com, our OTT stations on Roku, Amazon Fire & AppleTV and our social media outlets, plus whatever gets invented next week that we don\u2019t know about yet.
We\u2019re looking someone who can put the right content in the right lanes. Someone who can help gain new eyeballs for our newly energized morning show and our four-plus hours of evening, prime and late newscasts. Someone who wants to lead and inspire an experienced and ready-to-win newsroom.
Raycom is a privately-owned company that is great to work for (you can click here to find out more about them.) It\u2019s a company that understands where the industry is going and encourages and rewards innovation. They are very forward thinking on the digital front and just recently launched a national investigative unit.
And then there\u2019s Cleveland. Don\u2019t think of the throwaway thumbnail sketches you\u2019ve heard to describe Cleveland. It\u2019s not this. It\u2019s this, this, and this. It's a city making great improvements and with a lot of momentum. A vibrant downtown. A beautiful waterfront. A city with a perennial NBA contender in the Cavs, one of the biggest World Series threats in the Indians, and a team with nowhere to go but up in the Browns.
Hey, we\u2019ve got some room to improve, too. Are you the person who wants to take it on this challenge? The right candidate will be someone with a proven track record on morning shows. Someone with vision and organization. Someone with great interpersonal skills and lots of energy. Someone with ideas \u2013 stuff to try in newscasts, online, wherever. Crazy ideas that we don\u2019t know if they\u2019ll work. That\u2019s how it works with true innovation.
Ok, if you\u2019ve gotten this far you just might be interested. If you\u2019d like to apply, now is the time. We\u2019re looking forward to hearing from you. Good luck on making Cleveland and Cleveland19 your new home\u2026for a good long time.
