WHTM-TV/abc27 has a rare opening for a Reporter. We are looking for a winning reporter who thrives on beating the competition every single day. Our reporters are aggressive, constantly digging sources for stories that no one else in our market will have. Our newsroom thrives on being first with stories that will show up in the papers and on the other stations tomorrow. If you are a reporter who relies on press releases and newspapers for your story ideas, this newsroom is not for you. You must demonstrate why strong enterprise, process reporting and active live shots are critical skills for a winning television journalist. We want someone who understands that we are no longer just a TV station. We are the digital leader in our market and require our team to use social media platforms to engage our audience. Our reporters put just as much emphasis on content for our website as they do on our newscasts. You must understand that our deadlines are no longer at 5 & 6. Deadlines are now constant and we are always immediate.
Candidates for this position should have two to three years of relevant reporting experience. Reporters with a producing background are encouraged to apply. If you have shooting and editing skills your resume will stand out. Show us examples of work that you shot and edited on your own.
If this sounds like the job for you, tell us how you would meet our expectations!
APPLICANTS SHOULD SEND RESUME TO:
Harrisburg Television, Inc.
