You will report to the News Director as well as other managers. Our operation is based on a story-centric workflow. That means we prioritize story treatment across a variety of platforms, from our linear broadcasts, to our streaming services, as well as social media and our digital properties. Reporters must demonstrate a visually compelling shooting technique along with commensurate video-editing abilities. More importantly, a reporter is a critical thinker possessing intellectual curiosity and a healthy skepticism towards conventional wisdom. You not only gather the facts, but you crave asking hard questions. You will also anchor newscasts on a fill-in basis, or perhaps a weekend newscast. Our anchors are "working"-- in other words, just because you sit behind a desk doesn't mean you shed the reporter hat. You should add your own reporting insights to copy and relentlessly fact-check the news before it’s delivered.
