Multimedia Journalist

Posted: Updated:

WPTA-TV, Fort Wayne, Indiana, is a highly successful, legacy station that has an opportunity for an energetic, self-motivated Multimedia Journalist.

We want a creative storyteller who will fight for the lead story and showcase his or her work on multiple platforms every day, including television, web, mobile and social media. The ideal candidate must have a strong desire for news, with the ability to handle breaking news and live shots with confidence and ease. As an MMJ, you will produce content for each of our two broadcast news operations – ABC21 (WPTA21.com) and Fort Wayne's NBC (FortWaynesNBC.com).

This is the ideal position for an ambitious, aggressive, curious and motivated journalist. This is not a job for someone who expects “down time.” The successful candidate will have proven skills to develop sources, work a beat, and have solid writing and editing skills.

A degree in journalism or a related field is preferred, along with on-air television experience. Experience with newsroom computer systems and video editing is essential. A valid driver’s license and satisfactory driving record required.

WPTA-TV is part of Quincy Media, Inc., a family-owned company. Positions are available for candidates with all levels of experience and the advancement throughout the company. Visit www.CareersAtQuincy.com for links to all stations and opportunities.

You can submit your cover letter and resume with references plus online links to your work to Jonathan Shelley, News Director at jshelley@wpta21.com. Please indicate in your cover letter how you learned of the job.
