JOURNALIST | WOODTV.com

TERMS: WOOD TV8 is seeking an experienced reporter to join West Michigan’s top rated news team. This position requires a prior experience of at least five years. Candidates must know how to produce an investigative story, get answers for viewers, and always question the answers. If you want to be the main reporter every day, this is the right opportunity for you.

The News Reporter will work closely with our Photojournalists, Producers, Assignment Editors and Web Producers. We work as a team; we win together as a team.

News reporters are expected to generate story ideas that appeal to our target audience. We want journalists who commit to being part of the West Michigan community to develop the connections and contacts that will lead to original stories. Journalists should have a basic understanding of the legal process and know how to cover the justice system.

A bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism, or a related field, or an equivalent combination of education and work experience with a minimum of five years of news reporting experience (more or less depending on market size ) is required. The candidate must have excellent communication skills, both verbal and written, and have a superior on-air presence. Must have the ability to meet deadlines, prioritize assignments, handle multiple tasks simultaneously, and be flexible to work any shift. Knowledge of ENPS and Premier Editing is a plus.
