A quick interview with Roanoke.com’s Seth Gitner about the strategy/philosophy behind the TimesCast.
Want to work with an all-star award-winning online and multimedia journalism team for a daily that’s big enough to have lots of resources but small enough that you get to get your hands dirty as the lead developer on some projects?
Go to Roanoke.
The producer will be expected to work with reporters and editors from The Roanoke Times, as well as producers and developers from the Web site to create compelling and cutting-edge projects for Roanoke.com. When breaking news hits, this position will ensure our online coverage puts us ahead of the competition. The online content team works in the newsroom and collaborates with print staffers.
It’s a gig at a 97,000 circ daily that features a daily video newscast and tons of multimedia content. The Times is owned by Landmark Communications, the same company doing great things with video at the Virginian-Pilot and blogs at the Greensboro News & Record.
On a related note, why hasn’t this sweet job already been snapped up by some young up-and-coming news coder? Maybe Bryan can talk Seth into an IM interview about how hard it is to find the right sort of journalist/programmer for this sort of job, and why.
Awesome details on the online development in Roanoke.
