WHTM-TV, a Media General-owned property in beautiful Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, has an immediate opening for an Anchor/Reporter.
This anchor will join our anchor team on our 11pm M-F newscast and will fill in on the weekday 5pm newscast. Qualified candidates must be upbeat and highly energized. If you’re a cookie-cutter newsreader don’t bother applying. We are looking for a highly skilled journalist that will command our anchor desk.
You must enjoy hitting the streets and telling stories as much as you do engaging with the audience on the air and on digital platforms.
This anchor will also report each night, working in the field, turning packages that uphold our strong history of story-telling. You must be connected in the communities we serve, developing a daily menu of original story ideas. If you have an investigative mind, we would love to hear from you! We want a journalist, not just a reporter.
In addition we expect our staff to be involved in the community, representing WHTM at events throughout the viewing area.
The preferred candidate will have 3-5 years of experience as an anchor in a smaller market or as a reporter in a larger market that is ready to make the jump to the anchor chair.
Pre-employment drug and background screen required.
