Company: Associated Press

The Associated Press is the essential global news network, delivering fast, unbiased news from every corner of the world to all media platforms and formats. Founded in 1846, AP today is the largest and most trusted source of independent news and information. On any given day more than half the world's population sees news from AP.


The Associated Press seeks a videojournalist with a history of successful television and/or online video storytelling to join its health and science team as a video producer, based in Washington, New York or any U.S. city with an AP office.



Reporting to a deputy health and science editor, this role involves shooting, producing, writing scripts and editing video stories for AP’s broadcast, digital and mobile customers and platforms. The successful candidate will use video, graphics and editing techniques to deliver engaging visual journalism, working in close collaboration with staff in all formats on the health and science team and around the world. As a member of a dynamic, round-the-clock operation, the successful candidate must also contribute reporting in other media formats — including text, photos and audio — to help produce a competitive and comprehensive all-formats news report. This newsperson must have the ability and willingness to work any shift, including at night and on weekends, or as coverage demands, as AP is a 24/7 operation. 


The successful candidates will:

  • have strong technical skills in video production and editing, in both static environments and the chaos of breaking news.
  • be able to work under pressure to publish video to customers accessing content via various distinct products.
  • demonstrate experience visualizing information in compelling ways in video, joined with a track record of conceptualizing and implementing creative digital projects.
  • have strong communication skills and the ability to work collaboratively with the diverse team of journalists at the AP who operate in all formats: text, photo, video, audio, digital/social, interactive and graphics.
  • have a great news sense, with the ability to communicate and drive stories that people want to share, like and talk about on social media and other platforms.
  • pursue innovative coverage techniques while maintaining AP’s standards for integrity and objectivity.



This video producer must possess technical skills in the creation and editing of video content, as well as the ability to work within an all-formats team to apply those skills from start to finish on breaking news and short- and long-term projects. Candidates should have strong experience editing non-linear videos, preferably with Adobe Premiere. This newsperson must work effectively in a deadline-driven, dynamic and competitive newsroom environment, and understand how video content is consumed across a variety of devices and platforms. The successful candidate should have at least three years of full-time news experience as a video producer and/or editor at a daily newspaper, broadcast station, online or digital news outlet, or an AP bureau or regional desk.


Other qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience.
  • Authorization to work in the U.S. will be mandatory.
  • Advanced-level professional competency in written and spoken English. Professional competency in a language besides English is a plus.
  • Advanced-level professional competency in non-linear video editing is required.
  • Strong organizational skills with the ability to juggle multiple projects across formats.
