The ideal candidate has a meteorology degree or is in the process of obtaining one.

You will also be expected to contribute to the news product, either as a producer or reporter.

You should have experience with:

  • TWC Max platform
  • Social Media, including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Snapchat.
  • Familiar with a CMS, WordPress experience a plus.
  • Storm chasing

You should be familiar with, or be willing to be trained on:

  • Shooting & editing video basics
  • Cameras, lighting, and audio for storytelling
  • Rundown formats and writing

We are looking for innovative team members who thrive in a busy environment, are willing to be a team player, and would rather fix challenges instead of work around them.
