Your role

CBC Edmonton is looking for a producer to join our radio current affairs radio team, working for our top-rated morning program, Edmonton AM. We are seeking a natural born leader and consummate team player with superb journalistic skills.


Working closely with the senior producer of Edmonton AM, the successful candidate will implement the vision for the program and ensure we are effectively and efficiently covering the stories and issues affecting the people of Edmonton and Northern Alberta. He/she will be responsible for proposing original story ideas, chasing breaking news, developing program content and segments, interviewing guests, doing research, preparing and vetting scripts and lining up the show. The producer is expected to make independent editorial decisions, ensuring we have the most up-to-date news and information ready for the early morning team. Advice and guidance are available, but there is considerable latitude for initiative and independent judgment.


The producer will also play a role in supporting our digital and social media platforms, and will be expected to help co-ordinate the activities of others.


You will play an integral role in the Local Services strategy with a focus on three priorities:

  • Content: In this role, you will ensure that all CBC journalistic standards are met and that our stories are fair, balanced, accurate, thoughtful, immediate and resonate with the communities we serve. You will further our original, enterprise and investigative storytelling and ensure we are talking about what matters most to people throughout Edmonton and the rest of the province. You’re innovative and will try new things, new work flows and new story treatments. You inspire others to do the same.
  • Community: As the industry shifts, local news and community storytelling is more important than ever. You will understand the diverse and changing population in Edmonton and the importance of reflecting all our communities in our content. You will set a new benchmark in editorial leadership around community stories.
  • Culture: You live and promote the values of diversity and an inclusive and respectful work culture.


We are looking for a candidate with the following:

  • University degree or equivalent with five years' experience of which three must involve work in broadcasting or a closely related industry, which is directly related to the area of assignment.
  • A strong team leader with the ability to inspire others.
  • Demonstrated talent as a programmer with an ear for pacing, tone, presentation and production.
  • Superior writing, editorial and production skills. Interest in cross-platform media production.
  • Solid journalistic background.
  • An ability to choose relevant, audience focused stories, which reflect issues being discussed by the general public.
  • Quick to react and respond to breaking stories.
  • Interest and knowledge of events and issues in the community.
  • An innovator and risk taker.
  • A commitment to reflecting community and diversity.
  • Demonstrated social media skills.
  • Demonstrated knowledge of Edmonton and Northern Alberta.
  • Must possess a valid driver’s licence as well as a driving record that meets the minimum requirements of CBC/Radio-Canada's insurance company, other classes considered an asset.
  • Ability to work a variety of shifts including early starts, late finishes and weekends.

Candidates may be subject to skills and knowledge testing.
