News Director


WMBD AM/FM and wmbdradio.com is looking for a News Director for our active newsroom in Peoria, Illinois.

We're looking for someone who thinks beyond traditional mindsets - who is open to, and can contribute to, strategies to help re-shape how we do things - who understands the media ecosystem has changed immensely, and that we need to adjust to new expectations from news consumers.

You should demonstrate an ability to report, write, and present high quality journalism on multiple platforms. You'll manage our news assets -- staff, relationships with other journalism partners, and our on-air and on-line news product. Prior News management experience is preferred but not mandatory for the right person.

The person we hire should be organized, a very good story-teller, a self-starter, be naturally inquisitive, able to embrace new technology. You should be comfortable in a breaking-news environment and embrace creating exclusive content. This is a high-profile job at a market-leading, privately owned broadcast group.

We offer a competitive salary and a full benefits package. A valid driver's license and a good driving record are required for this position.
