General Assignment Reporter. FOX 6 News is seeking an aggressive, enterprising reporter to join our team. We have more 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. 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. You must have at least 3 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 mangers. Send along a DVD or hyperlink of your best and most recent work.
Multimedia journalist. FOX6 News is seeking a multi-media journalist to join our team. We’re looking for someone who has the passion to pursue stories long before the competition, strive to be the lead every night (both on-air and online) and communicate with compelling writing and on-air performance. Milwaukee is hyper-competitive! You have to want to win every day on the street! The world of TV News is changing, so the successful candidate for this position must be well-versed in all aspects of today’s reporting landscape, from shooting and editing with state-of-the-art HD equipment, to online postings, to working sources and of course being ready for whatever else is about to happen next in our business. You must be a reporter as eager to break stories on the web as well as on the 6 o’clock news. You need at least two years experience. Link us up with your most recent work – all of it being material you shot and edited yourself – and tell us how you think, how you work. You know the drill. If you can’t work in a team environment or you like getting your story ideas from the newspaper or assignment desk don’t bother. The e-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Weekend morning newscast meteorologist. FOX6 News is looking for an experienced broadcast Meteorologist to join the state’s top weather team. We have more than 40 years of collective Wisconsin forecasting experience and we’re seeking a dynamic meteorologist to add to our tradition of excellence. You need to do it all: television, online, social networking and community outreach. We have state-of-the-art HD weather graphics, live HD Doppler radar and one of the premiere live weather site networks. All the tools are here! The person we’re looking for will work all shifts, including weekend morning newscasts where a dynamic personality is an absolute must. We’re looking for more than just someone who figures out a forecast. We’re seeking a great storyteller who uses all the technology to create dynamic, compelling weather segments, on-air and online. We get a good amount of severe weather in both spring and winter, so hard work is a given in this position. We have Milwaukee’s only outside weather deck – so many times you’ll be “in” the weather while reporting on it. We’re not looking for someone who hypes weather events. That’s not us. But we are all about connecting with the community and being the premiere weather team in town that people can depend on. An AMS-sealed meteorologist with 2 to 4 years on-air experience is preferred for this position.
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. 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.
