POSTING DATE: May 19, 2014
JOB TITLE: Anchor/Reporter
COMPANY: KAAL, News/Weather/Sports
SCHEDULE: To be determined.
STATUS: Full Time, Salaried
ABC 6 News, the Hubbard Broadcasting ABC affiliate in Rochester/Austin, Minnesota, has an immediate opening for an Anchor/Reporter. This is not an entry-level position.
Why did you become an anchor? Is it because you're a pretty face? Or is it because you are a smart, critical thinker who knows when to read emotion into a story? We want the whole package, so if you've got it, keep reading!
At ABC6 News, you're not going to tell viewers about the latest fashions or introducing them to the pet of the day. Instead, we believe television news has the power to motivate and inspire. That's why you'll be giving people the answers to tough questions, delivering investigative pieces and taking viewers to places they can't go themselves. You need to be confident and smart enough to own your newscast and we expect you to develop your own questions for newsmakers. You'll also be expected to pitch and turn stories, including long form reports. We need leaders who can work hard, not egos that need to be managed.
If you are interested in joining our aggressive news team, send a cover letter detailing your news philosophy, resume, and non-returnable DVD or link to your demo reel.
Must be able to perform the essential functions of the job which includes lifting up to 50 lbs. (camera equipment), sit or stand for extended periods of time. Also at times must be able to work in extreme outdoor weather conditions. The Company will make reasonable physical accommodations to facilitate the ability to perform essential job functions.
