If you have what it takes, we are seeking a team member to fill the following position: Freelance Podcast Producer-Writer.

We need a talented podcast writer/producer, someone who knows how to write conversationally for the ear, a true storyteller for a national radio show.

We provide the topic (tech-related), you research it, interview the appropriate people including nationally recognized newsmakers or experts, write it, edit the audio and copy, and prep it for V/O. We put all the elements together on our end. This project is not for beginners. We need someone with experience in writing around actualities, and we do not have time for major rewrites. This weekly podcast is heard by millions of people and is hosted by a well-known national radio personality. See examples of our current podcasts.

The ideal person is intuitive, resourceful and knows how to honor deadlines. The final podcast time averages 16-18 minutes.

The podcasts should be compelling, entertaining, and informative. We need one great podcast every week. There are other freelancers who help us with the podcasts. So, if you can only do one or two a month, that's OK. But if you can do more, definitely let us know. Thank you!

Rate: We pay $300 for each approved script with actualities. Freelancer would be required to sign an agreement to insure ethical standards and best practices. You would provide an invoice.
