KPBS, San Diego’s NPR and PBS stations, provides news and information to more than 1.2 million people each week across San Diego and Imperial counties on TV, radio and digital media. A public service of San Diego State University, KPBS has a staff of 180 and an annual operating budget of $32 million. As the #1 public television station in the country and #1 radio station in the San Diego market, KPBS has been recognized as one of the nation’s top independent news organizations by the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism.
The innovation department provides strategic guidance and tactical support for KPBS’ digital initiatives. The department is responsible for evaluating and implementing new technology, ensuring an excellent user experience for our audience and balancing often competing priorities from the business units throughout the station. The team also serves as an in-house incubator for new initiatives, evaluating for sustainability and setting up best practices and workflows before implementing in other departments at the station.
The Project Manager (PM) is responsible for the planning, implementation and maintenance of KPBS’ digital technology, specifically the transition to a new content management system for our news stories, events calendar, and marketing content at www.kpbs.org. The PM will be responsible for all elements of the project, from gathering requirements from key stakeholders to securing vendors and ensuring the deployment of the new system happens on time and on budget.
