WMBD is part of a very dominant seven-station cluster. Our news team delivers live and local news on the hour, on the half, and when it breaks, seven days per week. We're excited to find a new team member! We'll spare you the ''we're looking for a news hound'' cliches. We assume if you apply for this job, you have a passion for the craft. That said, it is also important you have social media and web prowess, which includes (but is not limited to) knowing how to Facebook Live and post to Instagram, and having a knack for web visuals/videos. In this position, you need to become a multimedia journalist.
The right candidate will breed and foster newsmaker contacts and will want to be on the scene so they can draw their listeners into the story/experience! Our news team writes long form stories for the web and multiple condensed versions of each story to rotate on-air. So, the ability to write tightly is an attribute we'll be prioritizing. The chosen candidate will know what it means, from an on-air standpoint, to talk to the audience and not at the audience.
This position will require some on-call duties and weekend work. A valid driver license and clean driving record are required. If this sounds like an opportunity you'd like to pursue, please send resume, cover letter, writing samples, and mp3 of on-air work to Jeremy Scott, News Director, at jeremy.scott@1470WMBD.com. Midwest Communications, Inc. is privately owned and operated with 82 radio stations in eight states. We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer by choice.
