We’re looking for a digital video lead with an extensive production background, strong management skills, excellent news judgment and a fun but unmistakable sense of urgency to join our Los Angeles staff.


The right person for this job is…

  • An experienced senior manager of digital video production who can develop and evolve strategy and workflows of our high-volume content operation and output of news, live, feature franchise and branded integration videos.

  • An individual who makes fast, confident choices based on both data and good news judgment about prioritizing stories, beating our competition and continuing to grow our audience and revenue.

  • A mentor who can inspire, lead and direct the work of a team of creative producers and on-camera hosts, giving constructive feedback that helps them grow and improve their skills.

  • A compelling producer and script writer who loves pop culture, celebrity and entertainment news and thrives in an environment that requires both speed and accuracy.

  • A confident team player who can work with other leads within CBSi, ETonline, show producers and our shared newsdesk.


Responsibilities will include:

  • Overseeing all digital video production, including exclusive or breaking news, short-form features, and other branded content.

  • Managing a team of up to a dozen full time producers, including coordinating schedules and assignments for on-camera talent, booking or coordinating camera crews, and other production coordination.

  • Working closely with other editorial, post-production and social leads, as well as show producers and the newsdesk, to be sure all videos reflect our best and updated information.

  • Promptly assisting in determining when acquisitions (photographs and video) will improve content or help break news.

  • Using audience data and analytics to guide both story selection and measure success and conducting post-mortem assessments to continually improve and strengthen our work.

  • Working with our legal team and show producers to address and appropriately resolve any content concerns.

  • Maintaining consistent brand tone and style.

  • Shifts may include nights and weekends and occasionally may require extended hours for breaking news or events coverage.

The position is based in ETonline’s Burbank offices.

We’re committed to working hard and holding ourselves accountable but also encouraging the creative, competitive edge that naturally emerges when you actually love where you work. No screaming allowed.
