About this opportunity:

Want to work in a newsroom where you have the creative freedom to try new things? Want to produce and present compelling, informative content across all platforms?  Come work for 4 News Now. We're looking for a smart, creative, hard-working, engaged storyteller to serve as our News Content Producer/Reporter. Your primary job is to help produce our fast-paced, successful morning newscast on our brand-new, state-of-the-art news set.  You’ll work with an experienced team of newsroom managers, producers and anchors – and, alongside a team of excited journalists, always looking for interesting ways to deliver content. You’ll also help to develop content for our digital platforms – and mine those platforms for news content that translates to television. In addition, you’ll deliver that content as an in-studio reporter on the morning news. Your work will have meaning, as we strive to connect with our community and tell the stories that truly impact their life. We’re more about quality and context than story count. Here, everyone’s voice matters in developing our vision and strategy for local news. All this, and you’ll do it in an up and coming city, where you can spend your off hours exploring exciting restaurants, outdoor activities and adventure instead of sitting in your car in a long commute.

  • Develop, coordinate & organize news coverage into daily newscast
  • Write & edit news stories for newscasts
  • Format newscasts and execute on-air production
  • Coordinate pre-produced elements of newscast live shots
  • Contribute content to digital platforms
