News Anchor / Reporter

Midwest Communications in Peoria, Illinois, 1470-100.3 WMBD is seeking to hire a News Anchor/Reporter.

The right candidate will breed and foster 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. So, 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.  Experience in doing traffic reports is also a plus.

This position will 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 Jeremy Scott, News Director, at
