Are you a music fan, tapped into the latest music news, lifestyle trends and pop culture? RADIO.COM is looking for a highly motivated, creative and detail-oriented Content Producer to join our growing team.

Our music editorial team is looking for a writer to add to the Country music coverage and beyond across our network of sites, and is in search of someone who is immersed in Country music and on top of what’s trending. The team needs a strong voice who can’t quit consuming content and discovering music, and is ready to write about it.

The ideal candidate is a quick-thinking self-starter and resourceful writer who has a way with words and the ability to ignite conversations around the latest music news. You have a sharp instinct of what readers will engage with, are able to jump genres, and see stories beyond just the latest song and album releases, but also around human interest, viral, and lifestyle angles. You balance it all with a commitment to content analytics and thrive in a fast-paced, communication-driven team environment.

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Write, publish and distribute both original and syndicated stories across all station platforms, focusing on owned and operated properties like web/app/social

  • Ensure all daily content is optimized for search

  • Create content that drives audience growth and engagement, while supporting station and sales needs, when needed

  • Understand reporting systems like Google Analytics and how to use data to drive audience growth

  • Track content that’s driving traffic and know how to maximize audience and engagement

  • Strong communication with local stations to identify big-name guests, and breaking news to turn around content immediately--owning local news as opposed to being scooped

  • Ability to interview artists, researching the right questions to create compelling content

  • Be an effective communicator (beyond email), and possess the ability to maintain a healthy working relationship in an open environment with all levels of the local/central organization 

  • Other duties as assigned

  • A minimum of 1-3 years of digital content creation experience 

  • A passion for Country music and general knowledge of the artists, performers and events 

  • Flexibility to work nights/weekends as needed (news doesn’t stop at 5 PM)

  • Experience writing all music content, ranging from album and song releases to topical/evergreen lists

  • Must have excellent writing skills and the ability to tell engaging stories

  • Strong self-editing skills with attention to detail in grammar, punctuation, and design layout

  • Ability to own the news cycle to make judgments and react instantaneously and independently to key breaking/viral opportunities

  • Audio/video editing experience is a plus

  • Strong SEO knowledge and expertise

  • Basic MS Office skills are required. Other systems you should have working knowledge of include Google Analytics and Slack, as well as how to use/navigate a Content Management System
