  • Overview

    A unique and innovative news operation is looking for someone to help with a creative assignment desk. 

     

    NewsFix DFW is a unique “anchorless” format that breaks the mold of traditional newscasts and tell stories like no one else.

     

    You must be a consummate communicator, with the boldness to think differently when it comes to story assignments. You’ll need to look beyond press releases and work with staff to complete stories the NewsFix way. 

    Responsibilities

    We expect:

     

    • original local story ideas from you each week that are vetted, set up, and ready for an MMJ or a photographer;
    • continuous watch of multiple sources for breaking news;
    • communication with CNN Newsource and Tribune’s Content Sharing Desk, including sending scripts and video;
    • maintaining the “daybook” for the next shift and entering future stories and events; and,
    • frequent checks of our website and social media to be sure new stories are posted.

    Qualifications

    While we value fresh ideas, we will only consider candidates who have proven excellence on successful assignment desks.   

    A working knowledge of the Dallas-Fort Worth area is preferred.

    Must be willing to submit to a background check and have unrestricted authorization to work in the United States.
