Filcro Media Staffing - Executive Search Review
TV News Anchor / Producer reporting to the Vice President of News Programming (VPNP)
A leading global diversified news and media conglomerate producing and disseminating across multiple media platforms. Known as one of the world's leading news organizations with impeccable journalistic standards.
To identify a TV News Anchor / Producer to be based in Washington, DC with broad knowledge and experience covering U.S. and Middle East (MENA) issues relevant to a diverse global audience. Tony Filson functioning as Officer in Charge of Search from New York, NY - USA, with U.S. , MENA, Canadian and French recruitment research conducted from New York.
The Vice President of Programming was seeking an addition to staff that could help develop a younger demographic by attracting a News Anchor who could relate to relevant issues of concern to the target demographic.
The objective was to cover the MENA entirely and not be myopic. This News Anchor / Producer would have to cover News, Specials, Lifestyle, Business and Politics in regularly scheduled news segments as well as magazine style specials that cover diverse subject matter all relevant to U.S. and Middle East relations.
With media competition in the Middle East (MENA) growing across multiple media platforms and production standards increasing the Network wanted to produce content that clearly set new standards from a content, production and cross platform dissemination / assimilation perspectives. Ergo, we needed a News Anchor who could work very closely with a talented Executive Producer who wanted a collaborative relationship with a News Anchor who could add value as a journalist and endearing personality to garner respect in Washington, DC and the major capitals of the Middle East and North Africa.

Filcro Media Staffing proceeded to Identify News Anchors and On-Air personalities with strong production acumen in the U.S. , U.K. and the Middle East with specific broadcasting experience that mirrored The Networks’ objectives and markets. Meticulous review of journalistic, language, press credentials and editorial skills was laborious.
Extensive reviews of demo tapes, writing samples and news topics in Arabic and English were performed with candidates from the United States, Middle East, North Africa, Canada and France
Directly recruiting from all the “Industry and Sector” targets initially determined for universe compilation for the search was extensive and required multiple individuals working in unison to bring forward our ideal candidates. As exceptional English and Classical Arabic writing skills were required as well as on camera articulation, the vetting process required that demo reels and writing samples be given equal consideration. Tony Filson functioning as Officer in Charge determined geographic, political and cultural acumen to assure that the new News Anchor could be the collaborative partner the Executive Producer was seeking.
Given the amount of travel required and rigorous production schedules for multiple time zones we also need a news anchor / producer who could fully devote their time and efforts to their career.
