‘Suave’ from Futuro Studios and PRX Wins Pulitzer Prize
May 9, 2022 /
Futuro Media Group seeks a highly detailed, experienced Senior Producer to join our growing podcast and original programming studio, Futuro Studios.
The Senior Producer is responsible for managing production for a slate of up to 3 podcasts at a time within Futuro Studios’ larger roster.
We are looking for an experienced and skilled audio producer, journalist and team manager to lead new narrative non-fiction podcast projects at Futuro Studios. The Senior Producer is the equivalent of a “showrunner” for a podcast: creating a plan to report and produce a show, managing the team of producers, leading the reporting and writing of the show, providing editorial guidance, overseeing the post-production phase, and taking a show all the way through to delivery and release.
We are looking for bold thinkers excited to stretch the boundaries of podcasting, unafraid to take risks, and passionate about uplifting Latinx and BIPOC voices in audio.
The Senior Producer will report to the Executive Editor.
The ideal candidate should have extensive experience producing the kind of story-led, creative, well-researched podcasts that Futuro is known for.
Futuro Studios is the original programming division of Futuro Media, a non-profit production company and newsroom founded by award-winning journalist Maria Hinojosa and the producer of the public radio program Latino USA. Futuro Studios is the company behind critically-acclaimed narrative podcasts including “Suave,” “Anything for Selena,” “La Brega,” “LOUD: The History of Reggaeton,” and “Ídolo: The Ballad of Chalino Sanchez.”
