Cleveland19 in (appropriately) Cleveland, Ohio is looking for its next News Director. Cleveland19 is the brand name for the content we put on our CBS affiliate WOIO, our MyNetwork station WUAB, cleveland19.com, our OTT stations on Roku, Amazon Fire & AppleTV and our social media outlets, plus whatever gets invented next week that we don’t know about yet.
We’re looking someone who can put the right content in the right lanes. Someone who can help gain new eyeballs for our newly energized morning show and our four-plus hours of evening, prime and late newscasts. Someone who wants to lead and inspire an experienced and ready-to-win newsroom.
Raycom is a privately-owned company that is great to work for (you can click here to find out more about them.) It’s a company that understands where the industry is going and encourages and rewards innovation. They are very forward thinking on the digital front and just recently launched a national investigative unit.
And then there’s Cleveland. Don’t think of the throwaway thumbnail sketches you’ve heard to describe Cleveland. It’s not this. It’s this, this, and this. It's a city making great improvements and with a lot of momentum. A vibrant downtown. A beautiful waterfront. A city with a perennial NBA contender in the Cavs, one of the biggest World Series threats in the Indians, and a team with nowhere to go but up in the Browns.
