WTAQ AM/FM Radio, home of one of Wisconsin’s most honored newsrooms has an immediate opening for a news anchor/reporter; an opening you might be suited for!
We assume if you apply for this job, you have a passion for the craft, that you have social media and web skills, including how to Facebook Live and post to Instagram, along with the ability for web visuals/videos.
The right candidate will cultivate newsmaker contacts and will want to be on the scene so they can draw their listeners into the story/experience! Our news team writes long form stories for the web and multiple condensed versions of each story to rotate on-air. The ability to write tightly is an attribute we’ll be prioritizing. The chosen candidate will know what it means, from an on-air standpoint, to talk to the audience and not at the audience.
This position may require some on-call duties and weekend work. A valid driver license and clean driving record are required.
If this sounds like an opportunity you’d like to pursue, please send resume, cover letter, writing samples, and mp3 of on-air work to News Director Robert Kennedy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
