We tell stories, and we want to speak with you if you also do that.

The ideal candidate should have considerable live shot experience. We are looking for a strong writer, someone with sharp wit and the ability to work well with others. We're also looking for someone who is a self-starter and who can generate his or her own story ideas on a daily basis.The winning candidate will be able to demonstrate enterprise reporting and creativity in story-telling. Exemplary communication skills and previous experience working in a team environment are a must.

You will be required to produce daily content on a variety of platforms including the internet and social networks, along with performing other duties as assigned by the news managers or sports director. The ability to work under deadline and on a flexible schedule that will include evenings and/or weekends is required. You must have two years on-air experience.
