The General Assignment reporter researches, writes, reports, edits, and voices a wide variety of stories and series, regularly for evening and late edition newscasts for KTVF and KXDF. The general assignment reporter will focus on impact by framing stories in an explanatory fashion. The general assignment reporter must regularly pursue the “how” and “why” elements of stories. Successful general assignment stories will help the audience develop a deeper understanding of the subject matter; will place events in context; and will provide listeners/readers with information they can act upon.
This position covers daily developments across primary subject areas; files reports for newscasts, digital and other programming. While this reporter must be prepared to cover a wide range of subject matter, he/she should approach all topics with the goal of creating journalism with impact for the audience. This can be an even bigger challenge for the general assignment reporter than for a beat reporter who is developing topical coverage over a period of time, so it must be top of mind in approaching every story.
Degree in Journalism or similar degree is desired. High-level writing and editing skills, demonstrated ability to identify key developments and distill complex matters. Social media skills and data analysis skills are desirable. Able to work collaboratively, meet deadlines, juggle multiple tasks. This position requires working non-standard hours from time to time and some travel.
• Must be over 18 years of age.
• Driver’s license required
• Must have a clean driving record and live drug free.
