Description

News Anchor / Reporter – Term Opportunity
 

CKBW and Country 100.7 in Bridgewater, NS have an exciting two-month term opportunity for you to join Acadia Broadcasting Limited’s team as an integral part of our newsroom. Ideally, you have a diverse set of digital and broadcast journalism skills. Our newsroom moves fast, so reporters must adjust quickly, work well under pressure and have a demonstrated mastery in social media and multimedia gathering.

Key responsibilities:

  • Excellent news judgment. You will be making decisions on the fly and will be responsible for anchoring morning/afternoon news on both of our stations throughout the week and the weekend.
  • In addition to a solid on-air delivery, you are primarily focused on generating local and regional stories.
  • Your writing is tight. We need stories for broadcast that are 35-40 seconds (with audio).
  • You look for multimedia storytelling opportunities while covering events that will enhance our coverage and content across all platforms – radio, web and social.

You will work closely and report to the News Director. Here are a few other important skills we are looking for:

  • Strong interviewing, writing and editing skills.
  • You’re a social media wizard who knows how to distribute content through Facebook/Twitter.
  • You don’t leave home or the station without your company issued iPhone - meaning you are comfortable sending audio back to the station, taking pictures, shooting video and reporting news in real time – as it happens.
  • Able to establish and maintain positive relationships by attending community meetings, events and other public appearances.
  • Be hard working with a flexible schedule.

Requirements: Journalism/digital media diploma, a valid driver’s license and are comfortable with industry standard software including Burli and MediaTouch.

 

If you have a passion for storytelling and are driven to become a part of the community, we would like to hear from you. Send us your resume and demo.
