Do you consider yourself a storyteller? A news junkie who loves to get out in the field and talk to people? Then ABC 7 and Fox 22 in Bangor, Maine wants to hear from you.
WVII/WFVX has an immediate opening for a general assignment reporter, who will become a valuable part of our news operation. The reporter will be responsible for gathering multiple stories per day, and airing them in an impactful, engaging manner. We are looking for not just a reporter, but a true journalist who is driven to go beyond what meets the eye and tell stories that matter to people in a community that loves its local news. One day you may be covering a story about Relay For Life, the next day you may be attending a press conference with the governor, so willingness to be versatile is a must. A desire to cultivate sources and report breaking news in an ethical manner is imperative. You may be expected to work weekends/holidays/extra hours as necessary.
A thorough understanding of the importance of digital journalism is essential for this job. You must also be a proficient writer for both broadcast and web, and will be expected to be highly engaged in social media (Twitter, Facebook, Facebook Live, etc.) You must also be comfortable serving as a “one-man-band” shooting, producing and editing your own material. The ability to work under pressure in a team setting is also important. Experience with AP Style is preferred.
If you believe you are a creative mind who can make your work stand out, send your reel and resume to: Susan Farley, News Director, 371 Target Industrial Circle, Bangor, ME 04401-5721 or [email protected]
