Meteorologist/Weather Reporter

KMSP-TV is seeking a Meteorologist/Weather Reporter.

FOX Television Stations owns and operates 29 full power broadcast television stations in the U.S. These include stations located in 14 of the top 15 largest designated market areas, or DMAs, and duopolies in 11 DMAs, including the three largest DMAs (New York, Los Angeles and Chicago). Of these stations, 18 are affiliated with the FOX Network. In addition to distributing sports, entertainment and syndicated content, our television stations collectively produce approximately 1,200 hours of local news every week. These stations leverage viewer, distributor and advertiser demand for the FOX Network’s national content.

JOB DESCRIPTION

Now this is a fun opportunity!

A lot of stations say they are “all about weather”. But few places on Earth have the variety of seasons that we do in Minnesota. So when we say WE are “all about weather” at FOX 9/Minneapolis-St. Paul…we mean it.

And we are putting our money where our mouths are. We are searching for a dynamic live news reporter but one that knows how to present weather, to join our team in this unique hybrid role.

This isn’t just a standard reporting job. You’ll have the background and/or the desire to present the weather IN STUDIO at the weather wall on a routine basis. You’ll do a lot of storm chasing too!

Our reporters AND our weather people have:

Raging curiosity.
Edgy storytelling.
Dynamic on-camera presence.
Teamwork and hard work.

In addition, you’ll be fluid at using the latest technology to gather and distribute WEATHER content in real time across multiple platforms. Even if you just have the base knowledge of how to deliver weather segments at the wall and in the field…we’ll work with you to expand the base.

You’ll know current events inside and out; and have a desire to mine for and share information in a compelling manner.

Be a multi-faceted journalist who can write, present, produce, and share information on–air, online and through social media

Embrace the evolution and vision of the newsroom and be a good newsroom citizen.

We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, gender identity, disability, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. We will consider for employment qualified applicants with criminal histories consistent with applicable law.

At FOX, we foster a culture and environment where everyone feels welcome and can thrive. We are deeply committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion, including attracting, retaining, and promoting diverse talent across our company. We live in a diverse world, with different ideas and different perspectives that come together to spark new ideas and make great things happen. That means reflecting the diversity of the world around us is critical to our company’s success. We ensure that our viewers, communities and employees feel heard, represented, and celebrated both on screen and off.
