Broadcast Staff Structure
Staff structure for print publications such as newspaper, yearbook, et al are pretty well-known. Editor-in-chief, managing editor, etc. are commonplace, but what does leadership in a broadcast staff look like? Well, here is what I’ve done in the past (depending on numbers):
Adviser – that’s you.
Executive Producer – oversees all operations. All content decisions go through them. He/she signs off on the finished product. Executes mission/vision decided upon by adviser and all producers.
Associate producer – oversees day to day stuff. Scripts, assignment deadlines, etc. Reports to EP
Segment producer – oversees all operations of their segment (e.g. – sports, reviews, “fun” segment)
Chief photographer – top videographer you got. Mentors and evaluates photographers.
Chief editor (we called ours “chop”) – same as photographer, but with editing.
