WHTM-TV/abc27 has an immediate opening for a full-time Reporter. Please be aggressive, highly competitive and ready to beat the competition. If you enjoy sitting back, relaxing and having your stories handed to you then please do not apply. Our reporters drive our content and are expected to contribute multiple lead story ideas every day. You should be a highly curious reporter, focused on uncovering the news by submitting FOIA and Open Records requests. We are the original content station in the market and this means all members of the team must develop story ideas for coverage. If you are not willing to connect within the community and build a strong network of sources then this newsroom is not for you. You need to demonstrate why strong enterprise, process reporting and active live shots are important skills for a winning television journalist. In addition, we want someone that understands that we are no longer just a TV station. We are the digital leader in our market and require our team to use social media platforms to engage our audience. Our reporters put just as much emphasis on content for our website as they do for our newscasts. You must understand that our deadlines are no longer at 5 & 6. Deadlines are now constant and we are always immediate. If this sounds like the job for you, tell us how you can meet these expectations. Pre-employment drug and background screen required.
