Morning Show Writer/Producer

Channel 8 KLKN-TV is looking for a Producer/Writer to join our morning show team. The ideal candidate understands when and where people are getting their news today and we’re not just talking television.  You don’t believe broadcast, OTT, social or digital is more important as you see how all the puzzle pieces fit together. We’re looking for a true journalist at heart, with a storytelling spirit, and organizational skills that shine.  You are a clear communicator who can be concise when necessary and appreciates regular feedback.

You are a news junkie who always wants to be the first to tell people what’s going on. You have a love of local storytelling and the technical acumen to bring your words to life on a screen of any size. You are a true team player who’s eager to learn but can work independently when needed.

No matter what your dream position is, producing is a stepping stone to success. The producer is the “knows-how-to-do-it-all” position in the newsroom and we are looking for a strong producer to strengthen our brand and build a new future for KLKN. We aren’t opposed to producers doing on-air work at our station. We want to explore all your strengths.  Please email your resume and reel link to Steffani Nolte, News Director, snolte@klkntv.com.  Please denote how you became aware of this position in your response.
