5NEWS is looking for an energetic storyteller who can help take our sports coverage to an even higher level.
The sports anchor/reporter could be based in either Fort Smith or Fayetteville.
The weekend sports anchor/reporter must be a journalist who can find local stories, shoot video, edit, produce as well as both report and be comfortable on the anchor desk.
The goal is to tell stories about area athletes, teams, coaches and/or events. Find outstanding people and tell exceptional stories about them and their sport. We focus on storytelling, not just scores and highlights. The weekend sports anchor/reporter must bring new and fresh ideas to the table on a daily basis.
This person will have additional responsibilities in our weekly high school show ‘Football Friday Night’, any and all coverage of the Razorbacks as well as potential specials such as pregame or postgame shows.
Going beyond the newscasts, this person must not only contribute, but excel at posting interesting and engaging content to social media and the 5NEWS website.
