Channel 8 KLKN-TV in Lincoln, Nebraska, is looking for a News Anchor/Reporter to add to our morning news team.
This is your chance to be a leader on-air and behind the scenes while changing the dynamic of morning news in this market. We are looking for a Showstopper, someone who lives and breathes journalism, who is a sponge for news stories, and is ready to dig deep beyond the headlines and into the meat of the story. You must thrive during breaking news coverage as well. Investigative experience a plus.
You should be as news savvy as you are at ease on camera. The ideal candidate can break down difficult stories and present them in a compelling manner tailored to morning news. You are engaged in the process from planning to producing to presenting. You’ll turn a package or two just because it’s good content and you know how to tell a good story.
You should also have a powerful social media presence and a knack for interacting with viewers. The only thing you would like more is the community events you attend on behalf of the station.
This isn’t an entry-level position. This is for a seasoned anchor journalist who is ready to help reinvent and innovate morning news. You will also have an opportunity to mentor staff members and expand into digital platforms. Ready to apply? Email your reel (with a full segment of anchoring) and resume to email@example.com.
Please denote how you became aware of this position in your response.
Equal Opportunity Employer – all qualified candidates are encouraged to apply.
