Description

Our next MMJ/Reporter will love to be live and cover everything from breaking news, to issue-based stories and features with ease. You must be able to mine for content and develop sources and original storytelling. If you wait for the news to come to you, this is not the job for you. You will be expected to find the impactful stories behind press releases. There is no room in this newsroom for bad attitudes or people who rely on the Assignment Desk for story ideas. The ideal candidate will possess versatility, speed and accuracy when it comes to gathering and verifying facts, shooting and editing video, and writing. You must have exceptional reporting skills, live delivery, and be able to think through how to best tell your story visually. NBC15 is a multi-platform organization and qualified candidates will excel in traditional television storytelling, as well as digital innovation. Previous experience is preferred.
