·        Home or other remote recording ability and experience with various digital technologies

·        Familiarity with the public interest news environment, cultural trends, and emerging issues

·        Proven success building relationships and creating productive partnerships

·        Ability to juggle multiple forms of communication and social media

·        Sense of humor and innovative spirit a definite plus
