KMID has an immediate opening for a Sports Director.
The Sports Director will anchor the sports segments during our Monday through Friday newscasts and produce and anchor our high school football Friday highlight show. This is the home of the original Friday Night Lights. The successful candidate will organize, assign, cover, produce, and anchor the most important high school football highlight show anywhere.
We are looking for a good story-teller who can cover memorable sports moments and critical sports news in addition to game highlights. The successful candidate will have demonstrated abilities to do all these things as well as show a personable on-air demeanor, be a good citizen in the newsroom, and have more than a year's experience in television reporting.
In addition to leading the sports department and producing and anchoring sportscasts, the sports director needs to be able to shoot, edit, and write sports stories and highlights each day.
