Temporary Social Media Coordinator

KCRW is seeking a temporary Social Media Coordinator to start in mid-April.

Reporting to the Social Media Manager, the Social Media Coordinator (25-30/hrs a week, 3-4 months) will write copy and help produce daily content for KCRW’s social channels. You will be able to distill the most sociable ideas from broadcast, podcast, events, culture and the KCRW organization for our online community conversations.  An understanding of the right tone and best practices for FB, Twitter and Instagram is crucial.

What you bring:

  • Love of everything social, including staying on top of trends, best practices and platform changes
  • Great conversational copywriter with an understanding of the right mood for each channel’s audience, making sure KCRW is not just part of the conversation – but leading the conversation

  • Basic understanding of social media analytics

  • Minimum of 2 years of experience writing copy for FB, Twitter, Instagram content in culture-forward brand, agency or organization with strong social engagement
