  • Overview

    FOX 6 is seeking an aggressive, enterprising reporter to join our team. We produce more local news than any other television station in the state and need someone who is hungry and ready to get content online and on the air all the time. This person will handle our political beat – so an interest in politics as well as strong GA reporting skills are a must.

    Responsibilities

    Our political beat is a key part of our branding and community commitment – so an interest in politics is a must. Politics is a major beat in the state and has an impact on our news consumers on all platforms. Developing sources and breaking stories is what it’s all about- you MUST be able to demonstrate how you juggle sources, work contacts and develop exclusive content. You must be able to demonstrate the stories on your resume reel are enterprised and not a handout from the assignment desk. If you need the desk or a newspaper for stories, we don’t need you here. These days being a great reporter includes using all the technology tools: online postings, social media, videography, and whatever gets invented next.

    Qualifications

    You must have at least 3 to 5 years’ experience. You must be able to show your exceptional writing, story organization and live shot skills. You must be able to show your digital reporting skills. Timid and bland won’t cut it here. You must be a team player who works well with photojournalists, editors, producers and managers.
