Picture Yourself In DC As A Promo Producer

Abe Lincoln has a place there. So does George Washington. After all, they named the city after him.

Washington, D.C. The District of Columbia, The Nation’s Capital.

NBC’s O&O WRC is looking for a promo producer to work in the nation’s 6th largest TV market.

Working alongside WRC’s creative services director, you’ll play a vital role in developing the NBC4 Washington brand and driving tune-in to daily newscasts by conceptualizing and creating on-air, digital and social media promotion.

You’ll need three years of on-air promotion experience as a writer/producer/editor for a cable, network or TV station and a strong working knowledge of Premiere Pro, After Effects and Photoshop.

But the reward will be a high-profile position at a network O&O. Live in one of America’s great cities. Hobnob with politicians, lawmakers, and visit some of the many museums and monuments the city has to offer.

Washington has some great neighborhoods to live in, like Capitol Hill, Georgetown, Columbia Heights and Navy Yard.

There’s plenty to do. DC has tons of cultural activities, entertainment, shopping, festivals, outdoor recreation and great restaurants.

Like sports? The Redskins play here, as do the Nats, the Wizards, the Caps and DC United.

You’re near everything. The beach, the mountains and several cities including, Baltimore, Annapolis, Wilmington, Philadelphia and New York.

If you like diversity, DC is home to a wide variety of people from different ethnic backgrounds, nationalities, religions and economic levels.

The average home costs about $550,000 and a one-bedroom apartment will set you back about $2,000.
