Raging curiosity.

Burning tenacity.

Data-driven wizardry.

Did we mention curiosity?

The Emmy-award winning FOX 9 Investigators of KMSP Minneapolis/St. Paul has an extremely rare opening for a market-leading Investigative producer.

We don’t bother with those “test the hotel sheets” tired stories. Our Investigative team digs deep, focuses local, never takes no for an answer and always brings the story home.

You’ll work with a dedicated four-person unit to generate and bring to life investigative stories that are impactful and meaningful. Our team doesn’t just dabble in sweeps stories. We are dedicated twelve months a year to Investigative journalism on all platforms, not just television.

Just some of the skills you’ll have:

  • Source and relationship building.
  • Data-based mining.
  • Fearless interviewing techniques that can pivot to empathy when needed.
  • Records laws knowledge base.
  • Unique, non-cliché writing skills.
  • Multi-tasking prowess.
  • And the ability to generate enterprise, impactful stories that are 100% documented and verified.

If you’ve gotten this far, you know the rest. Undercover shoots. Creating and sending data requests. You’ll have the power of the entire newsroom behind you plus a nationwide station group.

And wow, when you and your team break a ground-shaking investigation that changes laws, holds influencers accountable, comforts the afflicted…you’ll know you’re making a difference.

Sports Reporter/Host

KMSP-TV in Minneapolis/St. Paul is seeking a Sports Reporter/Host.

If you’ve read this far, we don’t have to tell you: Local TV sports departments are shrinking, not adding.

Well, not here at FOX 9/KMSP in Minneapolis/St. Paul. We are THE local television sports leader in the  Twin Cities and growing every year. Just look at our line-up card:

  • We are the Official Home of the Minnesota Vikings. From the Draft to Training Camp, preseason to post-season…we do partnership shows with the Vikings Entertainment Network year around. Check us out by searching “Vikings Game Day Live” or “Vikings Postgame Tonight” on You Tube.
     
  • We have a marquee official partnership with the University of Minnesota. It’s “The PJ Fleck Show”, with the nationally known coach, for 5 months out of the year. And we don’t care whether Gophers are on our air or not, we do a football pre-game show every week. After football season, we turn our attention to Gopher men’s and women’s basketball along with hockey.
     
  • Twins or Timberwolves make the playoffs? Live, in the field sports shows are a gimme. AAA Baseball is on FOX 9+ with the St. Paul Saints.
     
  • And 52 weeks a year we produce 3 live weekend sports shows. That’s in addition to live sports segments in just about every newscast.

So how do you make our team?

  • BE a highly motivated sports JOURNALIST, not a highlight reader. Break sports stories that others will follow.
  • KNOW how to produce your own content on linear and digital. That’s not just a 3 minute sports segment. Know how lay out a show rundown and get it on the air.
  • DELIVER on the air in a compelling and conversational manner. Shout at the camera? Not a good fit for us.
