“A person who reads the news and introduces the reports of other broadcasters on a television news program.”
And that’s not what we are looking for.
FOX 9/KMSP-TV, the FOX O and O in Minneapolis/St. Paul, is instead looking for a 21st Century multi-platform journalist and innovative communicator to lead our evening newscasts. You’ll be dynamic and motivated. You’ll live and breathe news and information from our community, state and the world around us. You’ll be able to write and deliver that information in a compelling and distinctive style. You’ll be an excellent, unscripted live interviewer. And you’ll own social media…not just what’s hot now but what’s coming down the road too.
• A four year college degree with emphasis in Communications and Journalism preferred.
• 3 -5 years' experience in a medium to major market.
• Strong news judgement and a superior knowledge of current events.
• Conversational, pithy writing skills that stand out from “news-speak”.
