NEWS

General Assignment/Political Reporter. FOX6 is seeking an aggressive, enterprising reporter to join our team.  We produce more local news than any other television station in the state and need someone who is hungry and ready to get content on the air and online all the time.  This person will handle our political beat – so an interest in politics is a must.  Politics is a major beat in the state especially with our Governor likely running for President.  Developing sources and breaking stories is what it’s all about, you MUST be able to demonstrate how you juggle sources, work contacts and develop exclusive content.  You must be able to demonstrate the stories on your resume reel are enterprised and not a handout from the assignment desk.  If you need the desk or a newspaper for stories, we don’t need you here.  These days being a great reporter includes using all the technology tools: online postings, social media, videography, and whatever gets invented next.

Requirements: You must have at least 5 years’ experience.  You must be able to show your exceptional writing, story organization and live shot skills.  Timid and bland won’t cut it here.  You must be a team player who works well with photojournalists, editors, producers and managers.

Resumes and a DVD or hyperlink of your work may be sent to the attention of the Human Resources Dept.

Associate producer. FOX6 News is looking for an Associate Producer to join our growing news team.  The successful candidate for this position must be able to demonstrate a strong commitment to writing, accuracy and detail. Associate Producers help the staff producers in all areas of their work: writing, running scripts, tracking down information via phone or online and do whatever is needed so the shows can sparkle and shine.  This is the path to becoming a full-fledged producer.  If you like working weekdays 9 to 5, don’t bother applying.  But if you’ve got some experience in a newsroom, are passionate about quality, teamwork and time management, then you should get in touch. A bachelor’s degree is required; experience in a TV newsroom is strongly preferred.

Photojournalist. FOX 6 News is seeking a creative, multi-tasking photojournalist to join our team.  Every day you will use state-of-the-art technology to shoot and edit the best HD-quality footage in town.  You’ll collaborate with reporters, producers and managers to obtain the best visuals, the best “moments,” the best sound, the best news story.  You’ll use live ENG/SNG/mobile gear, sometimes all in the same day!  This is not a job for beginners – you need at least two years experience working in commercial television news.  And if you’ve already been working in the biz, you know there’s no such thing as “9 to 5” so be prepared to work all different hours, days, shifts, and assignments.  One day you might be covering the Green Bay Packers, the next you might be working closely with a reporter, live on the scene of a breaking news story, and the next day you’re solo, putting together a photo essay on a topic you found interesting and know will be great for air and online.

A bachelor’s degree is strongly preferred.  You must have a clean driving record (we will check!) and a Wisconsin Driver’s license.  Background check and drug screen are required.  You must be physically able to lift, carry and handle camera gear, and deal with the realities of a Wisconsin winter or summer.  So if you want to work at a place where hard work, a strong sense of team and creativity is rewarded, this is the place.
