WAAY 31 is looking for a Digital Content Manager. The ideal candidate is a news junky who realizes the future is online.
We want someone who can go beyond “digital first.” This person will help cultivate exclusive online content, understand social media algorithms and find what’s going to trend instead of what’s already trending.
Our digital content manager needs to work closely with news managers to ensure the online product matches the station’s objectives. This person will also supervise and manage the online presence of news employees.
The right applicant is an aggressive, smart, creative producer and a self-starter. It may sound like we’re asking for a lot but the right candidate needs to have a passion for news and digital platforms
WAAY 31 is dedicated to breaking news, severe weather and investigative stories that make an impact in our community. We want someone with the desire and drive to help achieve that goal every day.
Huntsville, AL is a hidden gem. Rolling mountains surround the city, as do lakes and rivers. We are also home to NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, Space Camp, the US Army’s Aviation and Missile command and the second largest research park in the country. If you like to travel, Nashville is a two-hour drive and Atlanta is a little more than three hours away.
