NEWS

Producer. FOX6 is looking for a great newscast producer to join our team.  We’re looking for someone who loves to create live, compelling television making use of all the production techniques for a great newscast.  We’re a big shop that puts out a lot of news every day.  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.  This position could be any shift on the schedule.

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

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.  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.

Web producer – part-time. FOX6 News is looking for a savvy digital journalist to join our team. Our multi-media platforms include FOX6Now.com, hyper-local sites, mobile content for iPhone, Android devices, Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, texting and whatever comes next in this fast-evolving world. We’re looking for a web producer to shepherd content – from stories to video to imagery to graphics – across all of our digital platforms. Crackerjack print-style writing skills, an attention to accuracy, detail and the ability to multi-task in a high-pressure, deadline environment are all essential for success in this position. We’re looking for a go-getter; someone who can take the job of web producer to a new level. For that reason, excellent communication skills are a must. Let there be no mistake – this is a job for a journalist who has a digital skill set.

Requirements. Bachelors degree with experience in commercial daily journalism. Must be comfortable with Facebook, Twitter, and Skype.  Basic knowledge of html coding and Photoshop preferred. An understanding of FTP and SEO are a plus
