WSIL, the ABC affiliate in Cape Girardeau/Paducah/Harrisburg DMA, has an exciting opportunity in our sports department.
We are looking for a high-energy sports director who oversees the department as the chief sports and content producer.
This market includes Southern Illinois University – Carbondale; the Southern Illinois Miners Baseball and many high school sports teams.
The successful candidate does more than just rattle off scores and highlights. Our next sports director is a true sports journalist with a passion for great storytelling. This is not the job for someone who needs “down time”. This position requires you to anchor, shoot, write, edit, produce, and coordinate coverage.
You need to demonstrate how you can aggressively use social media to engage and respond to our community and embrace the multi-platform approach of today’s newsroom.
This is not an entry-level position. Sports anchoring and reporting experience is required, along with a degree in journalism or communications.
If you’re a team-player with a drive to be the best, send your link, cover letter, resume and references to: firstname.lastname@example.org
