Description 

Line Producer, Fox & Friends

We are looking for a talented Line Producer to join the Fox & Friends team. As a Line Producer on Fox & Friends, your main responsibility each day will be translating the editorial vision for the show into an organized rundown and overseeing its live production on air. This includes building the rundown, making timing decisions, copy editing segments, and communicating directly with anchors. The Line Producer for Fox & Friends must be assertive, detail-oriented, and a natural self-starter. You should also have outstanding judgment, organizational skills, and creativity in teases and scripts. Most of all, you must be an effective communicator who can serve as the main point of contact for producers, directors, and talent/crew in the field. As the Line Producer, you can have your entire show planned, but at the very last minute, have the ability to throw out your rundown and remain calm for breaking news. The Fox & Friends Line Producer should be flexible and able to adjust on the fly in breaking news situations.



_You will be offered the following shift: TUESDAY THRU SATURDAY (1 am 11 am EST)_
