WITI’s Wake Up morning newscast is looking for a creative, energetic, “different” reporter in the field. Different is in quotes for a reason. You’re not a hard news reporter, but rather someone who is out giving us a look at life in Milwaukee—wherever that may take you (and us). However, you must also have the skills to cover hard news and breaking news when the need arises.
You’re oozing personality. You’re funny. You’re willing to take risks. You want to showcase great “people” stories on broadcast and digital platforms. You’ve been waiting for an opportunity like this. You’re organized. You’re a self-starter. You’re a team player. You’ve been itching for the chance to share your ideas, take chances and help contribute to a smart and fun local morning newscast.
You get to set up your own stories, go out on your own shoots and perform live several times each morning. You’ll be live on location every day for two hours.
You also need to be a well-rounded reporter who can cover hard news with the need arises. Your resume reel needs to show you can handle breaking news live. These days being a great reporter includes using all the technology tools: online postings, social media, and whatever gets invented next. You need to demonstrate that you can contribute to our mission of being a content provider on multiple platforms.
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.
