Company: Canadaland Media
Address: Toronto, ON
We are an independent news and podcast company producing the best audio journalism in the country. Through a mix of listener support and advertising, we provide 100,000 listeners a week with free, high-quality content focused on media, news, current affairs, politics, and more. We are looking for an experienced audio journalist to join the team of our flagship Monday podcast, CANADALAND. Each Monday brings a report, an interview, or a documentary on one key story that our listeners need to know about, need to know more about, or need to hear about in a whole new way. We are looking for a creative, technically adept, and news-literate audio journalist to work with our host, our managing editor, another senior producer, our chase producer, and a growing network of contributors on increasingly ambitious episodes of CANADALAND.
What you’ll do:
You’ll work closely with CANADALAND’s team as you pitch show ideas and assess pitches, and take a lead role in developing and producing individual episodes. You will research topics, choose guests, and write questions for our host. You will produce and cut interviews. Sometimes you will gather tape, or work with freelancers to do so. You will work with our host, production team, and freelancers to draft scripts, incorporate music and sound design, and deliver packaged, broadcast-ready podcasts, on deadline, always. You will make audio documentaries, sometimes in collaboration with outside contributors who may rely on you for audio-production skills. You will have the support of people both senior and junior to you, but as a member of a dynamic, collaborative team, you will at various times be called on to do all things, from fact-checking and metadata entry to conducting interviews yourself on topics you choose.
What you’ll bring:
The Senior Producer, CANADALAND, reports to the Managing Editor of Podcasts.
This is a full-time position based in Toronto, ON. Some evening and weekend work will be required.
Please send a CV and short cover letter as a single pdf attachment. Describe your interest in the position and include two pitches for episodes, including your proposed guests and format (feature interview, doc, etc.)
Include links to examples of your audio work and describe your role in producing it.

Canadaland Media is committed to building an inclusive environment for people of all backgrounds. BIPOC and LGBTQ+ people are encouraged to apply.
If you think you are right for this position, please apply, and let us know if you have relevant experience that we haven’t considered or which might be commensurate with other skills or experience described above.
