KPRC 2 is in search for a leader, coach, creative thinker, innovator and top-notch journalist to join our team as an Executive Producer. Our next EP will come to work every day, with the passion and drive to be the #1 news organization in Houston on all platforms. Houston is a diverse, growing city with a non-stop appetite for breaking news, enterprise and investigative journalism.  It’s a market prone to year-round severe weather events and winning weather coverage is a top priority.

You’ll help lead the editorial direction of the newsroom, focusing on stories that interest and engage our very diverse audience. We’ll be hiring someone who’s obsessed with understanding and serving our target audience, understands how to showcase big stories with memorable live shots, has impeccable news judgement and can motivate and lead veteran reporters and young producers while maintaining their cool under pressure.

Our Executive Producers need to react to breaking news and weather without hesitation and be willing to scrap stories the team has been working on all day to get it covered.  As an EP, you will also participate in the weekend on-call manager rotation.
