Description:

KTTC in Rochester, Minnesota, is looking for a true sports journalist to join our award-winning team and share stories of athletes from southeast Minnesota and northeast Iowa. For 70 years, KTTC has covered sports at every level. Our cameras were there at the first major league game played in Iowa at the Field of Dreams, regularly cover the Twins and Vikings, and are in the gyms and on the fields across our viewing area each week highlighting high school athletes.

KTTC is the leading NBC affiliate, serving Rochester, Austin, and Mason City as the #1 station for news, information, and entertainment programming. KTTC strives for leadership in our industry and in our community, and does this by keeping viewers safe and informed, supporting non-profits and organizations that serve the community, and helping our local businesses grow.

All employees accept personal responsibility for maintaining the professional culture at KTTC. The KTTC leadership team believes in workplaces “Free of discrimination, harassment, and incivility – and filled with opportunity, especially for those who’ve been traditionally denied it,” (a definition adopted by the work and training put forth by the Power Shift Project). If you value kindness and respect as much as we do, please apply.

Candidates should also exhibit a good work ethic, strong people skills, the ability to be a team player and work flexibly. This position may require holiday work.

Responsibilities:

KTTC Sports produces award-winning segments and content each year. We profile outstanding high school athletes each week in Athlete of the Week. To kick off the high school football season, we produce a 30-minute show called Prep Preview, highlighting dozens of teams across the area. Rochester and the surrounding communities are a golf-lovers haven. In the summer, we profile the best spots for golf in Par for the Course. During the fall, winter, and spring high school sports seasons, KTTC expands our sports coverage each Friday night at 10pm in Sports EXTRA. This position will require out-of-the-box thinking. Viewers aren’t tuning in for just highlights and scores anymore. They want context and depth on the scores they see on their phones and social media.
