NEWS

Producer (Studio A). FOX6 is looking for a great producer to join our team to produce our local program Studio A. We’re looking for someone who loves to create live, compelling television making use of all the production techniques for a great program.  We have all the newsgathering tools and place a premium on content and production techniques that are relevant and attract a diverse audience.  Producing is not just about television anymore – it’s about all the unique channels available to us through social networking, online and whatever else comes down the road next.  You need to embrace all of those things to be successful here.

Requirements. You must have a college degree with a minimum of two years producing experience working in a commercial television station.  Send us a link to very recent work.  If we like it, you’ll hear from us.

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. FOX6 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.
