This past week on TVNewsCheck’s Media Job Center, Tegna, Cox, Hearst, Gray and Quincy have posted job openings at stations in Biringham, Orlando, Phoenix and Waterloo, Iowa.
WBRC, Gray’s Fox affiliate in Birmingham, Ala., needs an account executive to join the station’s energetic and professional sales team. Must be a self-starter with a sense of urgency who can sell new business on-air, online and on mobile platforms while maintaining and growing existing business. Candidates must be detail oriented and have excellent communication and customer service skills.
Birmingham, Alabama’s largest city, is just 150 miles west of Atlanta. The cost of living in Birmingham is unbelievably low. There are 213 sunny days a year, so there’s really no excuse to stay inside on a beautiful day.
It’s as if city planners had made a list of everything a good city should have: a top notch art museum (and let’s make it free), an old factory turned into an event space, warehouses turned innovation hubs, their own version of the High Line, breweries, art galleries, an amazing bookstore, record shops, urban malls in old department stores, a beautifully restored theater, and dozens of fantastic places to eat. Birmingham has it all. If you’re looking for a southern city where you can afford a comfortable life, this is it.
KWWL, Quincy Media’s NBC affiliate in Waterloo, Iowa, needs a general sales manager with a record of results. The right candidate will lead the station’s motivated, experienced sales team through the evolving landscape of broadcast, digital and OTT. The GSM will work in tandem with the national sales manager who handles national and political sales, while having a primary focus of working with our account executives to provide leadership and support in developing local business as the top priority.
The Waterloo-Cedar Rapids-Dubuque-Iowa City market is a great place to live with numerous colleges and universities, good quality of life, ample recreation and close to Minneapolis, Chicago and Des Moines.
Located on the Cedar River, Waterloo dramatically re-energized its downtown in recent years by completing a huge riverfront renaissance initiative that includes a plaza, riverwalk trail, amphitheater, splash pad and hockey rink. The development complements an array of shopping, dining, nightlife and cultural entertainment options downtown and was a catalyst in growing those destinations.
Residents enjoy many amenities, including 50-plus parks and more than 100 miles of paved trails. The median price of a home is about $100,000 depending on location and size.
Cox Media Group in Orlando, Fla. — WFTV/WRDQ — needs a highly motivated newscast director to join its Eyewitness News team. This full-time position requires a detail oriented individual with excellent communication skills, someone with a strong technical television news/production background who functions well under the pressures of a live news environment. This individual must be willing to work flexible hours including mornings, evenings, weekends and holidays.
Orlando is not your typical Mickey Mouse city. Yes, there are the theme parks, entertainment areas, lakes, fine dining, near-by beaches, great weather, tons of parks, cool neighborhoods, and a rich art scene. As someone who lived there, I ask, what more could you want?
WVTM, Hearst’s NBC affiliate in Birmingham, Ala., needs an executive producer who can oversee fast-paced newscasts in an even faster-paced news market. Must be a driven, organized leader who can articulate a vision for their shows and lead a team towards the vision.
The right candidate will be a leader who can develop multiplatform content that succeeds on air, on mobile and on social media. Responsibilities include the ability to manage, coach and motivate a team of producers, reporters, anchors and photojournalists who are committed to excellence.
Birmingham, Alabama’s largest city, is just 150 miles west of Atlanta. The cost of living in Birmingham is unbelievably low. There are 213 sunny days a year, so there’s really no excuse to stay inside on a beautiful day. Between paddle boating at Oak Mountain, zip lining at Red Mountain and tube floating down the Cahaba River, there’s plenty to do outside.
If you’re looking for something a little less strenuous, people are always at Railroad Park, a 19-acre green space with ponds, a small skate park and a canopied plaza that’s smack dab in the middle of downtown. It was as if city planners had made a list of everything a good city should have: a top notch art museum (and let’s make it free), an old factory turned into an event space, warehouses turned innovation hubs, their own version of the High Line, breweries, art galleries, an amazing bookstore, record shops, urban malls in old department stores, a beautifully restored theater, and dozens of fantastic places to eat. Birmingham has it all. If you’re looking for a southern city where you can afford a comfortable life, this is it.
KPNX, Tegna’s NBC affiliate in Phoenix, needs an experienced producer who can write, create and produce exciting and interesting newscasts and news content for broadcast, online and social platforms. Producers must be able to multi-task during the news gathering hours, sharing content before, during and after a newscast or digital post. Our ideal candidate can identify engaging content, teach others how to do so, and develop a road map on how to meet the goals of our company.
Nicknamed the Valley of the Sun, because it sees more sunlight than any other metro area in the country, the Greater Phoenix area is ranked No. 26 as best places to live by U.S. News & World Report, and #17 as best places to retire. Its downtown area may be characterized by sleek, ultramodern office buildings, but the city center is not all about work. Phoenix also contains ample opportunities to play. Recently built sports stadiums, along with updated arts and shopping districts fringe downtown, as do some of the area’s finest eateries. Plus, there are 2,000-plus square miles of striking desert mountains crisscrossed by hiking and biking trails.
