WKRN-TV, the ABC affiliate in Nashville, is searching for a dynamic anchor and reporter to be a part of weekday storytelling in one of the country’s most dynamic markets. Nashville is growing and so is News 2. We are looking for someone who wants to invest in our station and the community.
WKRN News 2 Nashville is looking for an enthusiastic, creative, writer/producer/editor to join our promotions and marketing team.
Newsroom or broadcast experience is preferred.
What we need is a candidate who can compose compelling teases – in a limited amount of words/characters - for daily and nightly news topicals, image campaigns, proof of performance, and anything else we think of to promote the News 2 brand. It all starts with great writing.
We also want someone with that special eye and ear to edit the right video, sound and music to tell our stories, get our messages across clearly, and have the viewer looking forward to what’s coming up.
We use Premier with the Adobe Suite for editing. A lot of our normal workflow includes color correction, some After Effects, titling, audio enhancing, “bells & whistles,” etc. We’re looking for aesthetics that are pleasing, yet edgy and stand out.
A firm understanding of the digital world is also a major component. The ideal candidate will be someone who gets the nuances that separate on-air spots from those that we push to social media, Google, YouTube, our app, etc. We’re even more intrigued if you know how to work the analytics and algorithms of the digital world.
Experience setting up and directing shoots is also key. We need someone who’s comfortable scheduling, talent wrangling, location scouting, lighting, etc. Being familiar with cameras and having experience shooting is a huge plus.
Since we’re a news organization, our daily work flow can be fluid. Changing gears, direction, and priorities happen. And from time to time, hours may need to shift on a dime. But we work together as a team and share the load. We’re looking for a team member who isn’t easily rattled and gets an adrenaline rush when opportunities arise to push the News 2 brand higher.
If this brief overview sounds like you and are excited about the possibilities of working for the ABC affiliate in Nashville, TN, we’d like to know. Send a brief cover letter, resume, and link to your reel/portfolio to get the conversation started.
