KRGV Channel 5 News is looking for an Executive Producer, 5 News, to help drive an innovative vision for the Rio Grande Valley’s news leader. This dayside position will report to the news director and work to align the day-to-day coverage of our English-language newscasts with our overall brand vision.

Working for a small, family-owned broadcaster will give you the opportunity not just to lead coverage today, but to truly innovate as we look to remain relevant to our audience into the future.

  • Set coverage expectations and hold staff accountable
  • Manage newsroom and field teams
  • Understand and execute strategic plans
  • Copy edit with a journalistic and legal perspective
  • Develop producers who may be new to the business
  • Work with reporters from story concept to finished product
  • Participate in and lead editorial meetings
  • Other duties as assigned by the News Director


  • Four-year college degree in journalism or communications-related discipline.
  • Minimum 3-5 years of experience producing newscasts or working in broadcast newsrooms. News management experience preferred.
  • Strong understanding of broadcast and digital news operations.
  • A believer in brand-driven news content and the ability to apply that thinking to day-to-day coverage.
  • Great writing skills.
  • Strong personal communicator, capable of managing and aligning conflicting views.
