Assistant Production Manager

MontanaPBS/MPAN
Helena

KUSM-TV is a public broadcasting television station licensed to Montana State University in Bozeman. The station, together with KUFM-TV, licensed to The University of Montana in Missoula, comprise MontanaPBS, a statewide television service reaching over 400 communities. KUSM also offers complete television production services to on campus departments, public agencies, and, as appropriate, the private sector.

KUSM-TV/Montana PBS is under contract with the Legislative Services Division (LSD) of the state of Montana to deliver audio-visual production services that meet the statutory provisions of Title 5, Chapter 11, Part 11 MCA, and to work in collaboration with LSD to develop, operate and continually improve the Montana Public Affairs Network (MPAN) channel. MPAN is the statewide broadcasting service that provides citizens with access to impartial, unedited, gavel-to-gavel coverage of public affairs activities of the Montana Legislative, Executive and Judicial Branches.

The MPAN Assistant Production Manager reports directly to the MPAN Production Manager. The Assistant Production Manager is based in Helena, Montana.

The Assistant Production Manager assists the MPAN Production Manager and the other MPAN Staff, in consultation with LSD, with all aspects of media production and distribution of various state government proceedings. Viewing audiences receive this content through broadcast and cable television, direct satellite distribution, live and on-demand online streaming, as well as multiple closed-circuit channels within the Capitol Building. After broadcast, the content is also preserved in long-term archive storage. In addition to producing in-house coverage of proceeding and events, the Assistant Production Manager will assist with programming decisions and project coordination with LSD. The Assistant Production Manager will also assist with program acquisition, broadcast programming and scheduling tasks, and some studio and field production, along with post-production and packaging tasks in preparation for distribution. The person in this position will also assist in the development of future programming and promotional materials.
This position is classified as Part-Time. However, there is some cyclical variability in the number of required hours of work, and in the required work schedule. The scheduling of events on the Legislative Services broadcasting calendar determines the work schedule. Full Time availability, occasionally in excess of 40 hours per week, will be required during the Legislative Session (January through April in odd-numbered years), as well as during any Legislative Special Sessions. During the Interim Session, the work schedule will be closer to half-time, typically averaging 20 hours per week, although there will be some week-to-week variability depending on the Legislative calendar.. There can also be some flexibility in the scheduling of those hours during the Interim Session.

NOTE: as a Part-Time position, the benefits package remains the same regardless of the variable hours worked.
