Additional Notes from the Manager
This role is a junior position who is basically receiving or requesting assets and information, then entering it into our CMS for the shows on a schedule, sometimes writing short copy.

They are responsible for making sure these updates happen (i.e. uploading photos to galleries, entering in config information for the show schedule, etc) but do not “own” those channels — they work under supervision.

There may also be some opportunity to write short blog posts and other copy but it is not core to the job.

One example of a task is that they receive notice that one of our TV shows has a new video published live. They’re asked to enter in some basic configuration info for the video (title, expiration date, sometimes short copy for a description). Then they pick a photo that will be the basis for an image created to promote that video on the site, and send the photo the design team with some suggested copy (i.e. “Click here to see a preview of the new episode!”). Once that’s received, they upload that image and specify the web address it points to.
