CNN seeking Blog Producer

Now this is the right job for me:

Duties: Producer will cover web-logs (blogs), pod-casts, and other internet-based forms of new media. The web producer will locate, research, and report on blogs and web sites that include news, politics, policy, commentary, and other information of value to our viewers. The results will be daily television segments reporting on this area of the media. This person will be responsible for producing both the editorial content and also the graphic and video elements necessary to develop each segment. This person will also report on-air as needed.

Too bad I don’t match the job requirements:

Qualifications: Five years network or local television journalism experience in control room and live segment producing required. Guest bookings experience desirable. Must have outstanding computer knowledge and extensive understanding of and interest in blogging and the internet. Qualified candidates must have strong editorial news judgment with experience pitching ideas and getting them through approval to air. Knowledge of American politics and key players in Washington is also important.

Oh well… it’d probably be a thirty-seconds segment in the middle of the night, anyway.
