Broadcast Careers: KETV, Omaha - Photographer/Editor

 

Category:
Media - Journalism

Position/Title:
Photographer Editor

Details:

KETV, Omaha’s News Leader, has an opportunity for a photojournalist who wants to join our award-winning Hearst Television team at historic 7 Burlington Station.

We are looking for someone who can use the art of videography to convey the essence of a story through compelling imagery, natural sound, and engaging interviews. 

Our photojournalists most often team-up with reporters to pursue stories of importance and interest to the Omaha market.  But the winning candidate also will be able to set-out alone on occasion to collect the video and information needed to create memorable television and digital content.

The winning candidate will care about proper lighting and have an eye for shooting a story in a way that distinguishes KETV NewsWatch 7 from the competition every day.   We want a photojournalist who can respond to breaking news quickly and calmly, but who is ready to take deep-dives into feature and investigative reporting as well.   We want photojournalists who are self-starters—eager to be first, and best.

KETV NewsWatch 7 photojournalists are engaged in the latest technology, dedicated to being correct and first, and skilled at working on tight deadlines when stories break late.  Time-management is crucial.

Photojournalists must be skilled at editing with Adobe Premiere, either at the station or in the field, and they must be passionate about distributing video on digital platforms and social media.

Above all, the winning candidate must be a team player, ready to join a vibrant newsroom community which thrives on working together.

Job Responsibilities:

  • ·         Working in partnership with reporters and the assignment desk to cover daily stories
  • ·         Shooting, and editing material for on-air, and digital platforms.
  • ·         A commitment to solid journalism and the willingness to gather facts and information
  • ·         A team approach:  Communication with reporters, producers and managers
  • ·         Ability to travel, on occasion, for breaking news and special projects.
  • Proper care of equipment and vehicles

Experience:

  • Previous newsroom experience is preferred
  • Ability to speak Spanish is a plus
  • College degree is preferred

Qualifications:

  • Must be able to carry 40 lbs. of equipment
  • Must have clean driving record
  • ·         Operation of ENG and Portable transmitting equipment, or willingness to train
  • ·         Can work all shifts, including weekends and overnights as needed
  • Can work in all weather conditions
