About this opportunity:
Are you looking for a newsroom that encourages creativity in storytelling, led by a news director who’s ready to make things happen at the station the community hasn’t seen before? Want to learn and grow to not only be a more dynamic storyteller, but also stronger journalist? We’re ready for you to join our close-knit news team at KAPP/KVEW, the local ABC affiliate in the Yakima/Tri Cities market of Washington state.
Why Work for KAPP-KVEW TV?
We’re looking for a Multi-Media Journalist who likes to dig and really wants to win on the big stories. Can you tell a feature story as well as you can cover a breaking crime scene? Is social media second nature? Multi-Media Journalists on our team get support and feedback, but also are held to high expectations to deliver the stories our community needs. We’re a newsroom that thrives on growth and teamwork. You’ll join a family-owned company located in Kennewick, Washington, serving the Yakima/Tri—Cities area. The fast-growing Tri-Cities area (Kennewick/Pasco/Richland) offers 300 days of sunshine, amazing outdoor views, cultural diversity, stress-free commutes, proximity to Spokane, Seattle and Portland, and is known as the “Heart of Washington Wine Country.”
What you’ll do:
As a Multi-Media Journalist, you’ll pitch and develop stories, track down leads and stretch your creative muscle to tell the most compelling stories across platforms, while building and fostering relationships with community members and leaders. Want to test your skills on shooting/anchoring/editing/producing? We provide opportunities to see where else your passion might take you. We want your best, but we also value your life outside of work as much as we value what you bring to the newscasts each day.
What you’ll get in return:
You’ll get a supportive work environment with co-workers and managers who value your work, your time and your perspective. Our management team is committed to maintaining a culture where employees can flourish and grow, professionally and personally.
Pay range: $15.87/hour – $19.81/hour
Benefits: We offer employees and their families medical, dental, vision, prescription, life insurance, and Employee Assistance Program benefits. Employees are also offered long-term disability insurance, flexible spending account, 401(k), health savings account, employee referral program, and paid time off including vacation time equivalent to 80 hours/year depending on start date, 1 hour of sick time for every 40 hours worked, 2 personal days and 9 paid holidays.
Apply right away for a chance to join a news team that believes in family, community and a legacy of local journalism. Live in a beautiful city with just enough unusual news to keep you engaged. Work with Multi-Media Journalists who take their role in democracy very seriously, but who also know that the newsroom itself should be a safe and supportive place.
