MTV News Seeks Pop Culture Enthusiast For VP Gig

Do you live and breathe pop culture? Can you have table discussions about everyone from Justin Bieber to JWoww? Well, MTV News is looking for a new vice president to helm the multiplatform, daily news operations for the brand.

If hired, you’ll be overseeing the reporting, writing, shooting, editing, digital production and broadcast of on-air and online video, articles, blogs and photos. No big deal, right? You will also be supervising managing editors for News and Movies, as well as directors of video, field and digital production. Conceptualizing platform and project ideas based on internal and external measurements will be the name of your game, while SEO and social media should be (or become) your obsessions. Well, that and whatever Kanye West last tweeted.

The ideal candidate will have at least 10 years of convergent newsroom experience with a background in journalism or communications. You should have working knowledge of Web and TV production, including familiarity with HTML, CMS, WordPress, iNews, etc. Those who can create sharp, witty and accurate content are most desirable.
