Content Director

KUNR Public Media, is seeking a Content Director to lead KUNR’s delivery of quality news, broadcast and digital content. This position is for someone who loves the intersection of news, audience analysis and content strategy in pursuit of public service journalism. Our goal is to grow our regional audience in Northern Nevada and the Eastern Sierra across our broadcast and digital platforms and continue to produce award-winning journalism that empowers our community.   

The Content Director will oversee KUNR’s newsroom staff, digital editor, and on-air hosts, including part-time employees. That includes managing KUNR’s on-air “sound” and its programming lineup. The Content Director will work closely with KUNR’s daily news editor to lead the editorial direction of news content using best practices of public media journalism and audience analysis to inform strategic decisions. The Content Director reports to KUNR’s general manager and gives counsel relating to news and broadcast operations.

KUNR is a member of the Mountain West News Bureau and regularly receives grant funding to help broaden our journalism, including the Ground Truth Project and American Public Media. You’ll be a good fit for this job if you want to help build the future of local journalism through public, non-profit media.

KUNR is based on the beautiful University of Nevada, Reno campus. Our Northern Nevada community features world-class recreation right out the back door, a thriving business climate and a vibrant food and arts scene. Join our growing team to build on KUNR’s nearly 60 years of service to our region.
