JOB DESCRIPTION

Here's a dictionary definition of a news anchor.

anchor

noun an• chor /ˈaŋ-kər-/

''A person who reads the news and introduces the reports of other broadcasters on a television news program.''

And that's not what we are looking for.

FOX 9/KMSP-TV, the FOX O and O in Minneapolis/St. Paul, is instead looking for a 21st Century multi-platform journalist and innovative communicator to help lead our 430a-6a newscasts. You'll be dynamic and motivated. You'll live and breathe news and information from our community, state and the world around us. You'll be able to write and deliver that information in a compelling and distinctive style. You'll be an excellent, unscripted live interviewer. And you'll own social media…not just what's hot now but what's coming down the road too.

You'll have:
• A four year college degree with emphasis in Communications and Journalism preferred.
• 3 -5 years' experience in a medium to major market.
• Strong news judgement and a superior knowledge of current events
• Conversational, pithy writing skills that stand out from ''news-speak''.
• A professional appearance
