Metro Detroit: Newsmakers June 30, 2010




Metro Traffic, a Westwood One Company, is immediately seeking candidates for Traffic Producer positions in the Detroit Market. Some people may be asked to work FULL TIME.

All positions will be based in our Southfield, MI Regional Operations Hub.

Producers use a large variety of traditional and emerging technologies to gather raw traffic data. They then confirm all leads and enter the information into our system for distribution to all traffic reporters, web and mobile platforms and broadcast and new media partners. Efficient and timely handling of all leads and data is REQUIRED of all producers.

Successful candidates may have experience gathering or reporting traffic information, a journalism background or an interest in data collection or distribution. Producers will be called upon to work Drive Times, Nights, Weekend and Holiday hours; as our hub provides complete information for our region 24/7/365. We are looking for eager applicants ready to grow in a fast paced and demanding environment.


Metro Traffic is also immediately seeking candidates for Part-Time and Fill-In On-Air Traffic and News positions in the Detroit Market.

Assignments may vary, based on affiliate approval, scheduling needs and candidate ability. Some shifts will be based at affiliate locations, some at the Southfield, MI Regional Operations Hub and some in our traffic chopper--including running our FLIR Gyro Cam for TV station footage. Some candidates will also be considered for On Camera television assignments.

We need our anchors to be able to gather complete and timely information from ALL available sources, digest the "big picture" of what's going on out there and then deliver compelling, concise reports to stations within the constraints of their formats.

Successful candidates will have appropriate experience in traffic and/or news reporting, writing and anchoring, the ability to work night, weekend and holiday hours, a great on-air sound and an eagerness to grow in a fast paced and demanding environment.


For all of the openings above, knowledge of more than one of our markets in Michigan (Detroit and Grand Rapids) and Ohio (Dayton, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus and Toledo) will be a huge plus. We will train the right people on our technical systems and internal procedures. Experience IS important, but MOST important is the ability to get the job done right, on time and without drama.

For consideration, submit a package ASAP that includes an audio sample to:

Howard Bouton
Regional Director of Operations
3000 Town Center, Suite 2160
Southfield, MI 48075
