Last week on TVNewsCheck’s Media Job Center, new jobs in highly desirable markets were posted for a TV news producer at Capitol Broadcasting’s WRAL in Raleigh, N.C., and for an assignment editor at Tenga’s KPNX in Phoenix.
WRAL, the dominant television station in the Raleigh-Durham-Fayetteville, N.C., market, is looking for a strong news producer to craft, write and oversee compelling, visually interesting and fast-paced newscasts. During the newscast, this person is responsible for timing stories, weather, and sports to ensure the newscast ends on time; coordinating breaking news stories; and leading the production crew in the control room to make sure the newscast is executed cleanly on the air.
WRAL wants a person with outstanding leadership and communication skills, proven writing ability, a vision for graphics, and a passion for memorable, creative newscasts. If you are a strong decision-maker capable of managing multiple live shots, writing compelling copy and producing top-notch newscasts, this is the job for you. Two years of television news producing experience and a four-year college degree, are required.
WRAL is locally owned by Capitol Broadcasting Co., a stable, community-oriented company that offers some of the best benefits in the business.

Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill are known for their research/technology roots and collegiate rivalries, according to U. S. News & World Report, which ranks Raleigh as the 10th Best Place to Live in the country. This tri-city region (known as the Triangle) is luring new residents every day with strong job growth and a high quality of life. One of the best parts about Raleigh is that it’s a city with a small town feel.
Many people who call the Raleigh and Durham metro areas home are young, friendly, diverse and educated. They enjoy dining out in the more than 1,200 local restaurants in the Raleigh area, many of which have earned national accolades, and gathering over craft beers in one of the region’s many microbreweries.
A strong sense of community is evident, as strangers are quick to provide a friendly conversation when standing in line at the supermarket.
Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill also encompass beautiful green spaces, family-friendly museums and a growing art and music scene defined by monthly gallery walks, summer concerts and music festivals like Hopscotch.
Raleigh is just a few hours west of the Atlantic Ocean, only a couple hours from the mountains if you enjoy skiing or snowboarding. The median home price is about $250,000 and median rent is under $1,000.

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 No. 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.
Within the Valley of the Sun, you can trace Arizona’s history from its earliest Hohokam residents at the Pueblo Grande Museum & Archaeological Park to the latest technological developments showcased at the Arizona Science Center. Plus, there are 2,000-plus square miles of striking desert mountains crisscrossed by hiking and biking trails.
The median home price for a home is $235,000 and average rent is about $1,050.
