JOB OPENING: Digital Assignment Desk
JOB DESCRIPTION: Love being in the middle of it all? Then KWQC, an NBC affiliate that’s the longtime #1 station in the Quad Cities, has the job for you. We’re looking for someone to help the station navigate the changing digital landscape, while strengthening our on-air content. If you always need to be the first to know something, won’t take “no” for answer, and love sharing information anyway you can, you’re the kind of person we want to hire. This person will make calls on developing stories, monitor scanners for breaking news, and dig on the internet for additional background on people and places we’re covering. Once you uncover that information, you’ll be sharing it with our on-air news team and writing it to distribute on our website, news app, and social media platforms.
A curiosity about your community, as well as attention to detail and strong writing skills are critical. So is the ability to work with anchors, reporters, photographers and more. Team players only, please.
QUALIFICATIONS: A college degree in journalism or related field. We are looking for a person with experience leading a team. In lieu of a college degree, applicants with 5 or more years of experience will be considered. Smart. Fair. Energetic. Must have a valid drivers’ license and be insurable.
