Job Description:

The Wall Street Journal is looking for a news junkie and experienced supervising producer for WSJ Podcasts to lead a small team of audio journalists producing a daily news podcast and news briefs for a fixed maternity-cover period. In this role, you'll assign stories, edit and approve scripts, and help produce and edit audio. You'll tap into the stories of the Journal's newsroom, fact-checking and editing short and long-form scripts for multiple daily podcasts and news briefs with topics ranging from business and tech to personal finance and politics. The job may also include booking guests and prepping interviews, developing story ideas and filling in on the mic when needed. This position requires a collaborative and player-coach mentality.

This is an editorial role leading our London-based audio team. A strong news background is essential for this job.

  • Help the New York-based executive producer lead the team in story pitching, booking guests, researching, fact-checking, and editing in the WSJ voice
  • Offer editorial feedback, contribute to story generation and development
  • Interview WSJ reporters and external sources, coaching those without audio experience
  • Coordinate with the London-based supervising producer for video to ensure collaboration
  • Be able to work in the field independently
  • Use ProTools to cut and assemble shows

You have:
  • 7+ years working in a news or news-adjacent setting, preferably in business news
  • 5+ years' experience in audio storytelling
  • Experience leading and managing a small team
  • Experience fact-checking and editing audio scripts, both before and after recordings
  • Calm under pressure, the ability to switch gears and react to breaking news
  • An ability to manage multiple projects at once
  • Strong journalistic judgment with a specific eye for fact-checking standards
  • Experience communicating with and booking talent
  • Proficiency in cutting and mixing tape for audio publications
  • Experience with field recording and hosting on-mic is a plus
