Chief Photographer

JOB DESCRIPTION:
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY. This is a shooting job. The Chief Photographer will shoot Special Projects, fly in our Chopper, and shoot more than the occasional GA story.

RESPONSIBILITIES:
You will report to the KOB News Director and be an active decision maker on our management team. The ideal candidate will lead by word and deed. You will perform Administrative duties to supervise our team of 10-11 photojournalsists. That includes scheduling and annual performance reviews. You will take a leadership role in training our staff to embrace new shooting and editing styles. You will track the condition of our gear, vehicles and live trucks and advise the News Director of our needs to improve our on-air product. You will need to learn quickly about our technology because you will be the main liason to Engineering and IT. The Photo Chief will be expected to provide regular feedback and scheduled critiques to the photographers and editors. And, this is important: the Photo Chief will be expected to have 'tough conversations' when necessary with the staff members. At KOB the many good things we achieve are praised, but when we fall short we focus on fair, balanced accountability. That's how we grow as a station.

REQUIREMENTS:
Minimum of five-years television news photography and editing experience required. Previous management experience is desirable but not required. A desire to grow people and fit into a coach/mentor role IS required. This is a salaried position. It is an unbelieveable opportunity for a Photojournalist who is an active, proactive Manager now...or who wants to grow into a News Management role.
