Job Description

Fox Television Stations is one of the nation's largest owned-and-operated network broadcast groups, comprising 29 stations in 18 markets and covering over 37% of US television homes. This includes seven duopolies in the top 10 markets: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, San Francisco, Washington, DC and Houston; as well as duopolies in Minneapolis, Phoenix, Orlando and Seattle.

JOB DESCRIPTION

If you've read this far, we don't have to tell you: Local TV sports departments are shrinking, not adding.

Well, not here at FOX 9/KMSP in Minneapolis/St. Paul. We are THE local television sports leader in the Twin Cities and growing every year. Just look at our line-up card:
• We are the Official Home of the Minnesota Vikings. From the Draft to Training Camp, preseason to post-season…we do partnership shows with the Vikings Entertainment Network year around. Check us out by searching ''Vikings Game Day Live'' or ''Vikings Postgame Tonight'' on You Tube.
• We have a marquee official partnership with the University of Minnesota. It's ''The PJ Fleck Show'', with the nationally known coach, for 5 months out of the year. And we don't care whether Gophers are on our air or not, we do a football pre-game show every week. After football season, we turn our attention to Gopher men's and women's basketball along with hockey.
• Twins or Timberwolves make the playoffs? Live, in the field sports shows are a gimme. AAA Baseball is on FOX 9+ with the St. Paul Saints.
• And 52 weeks a year we produce 3 live weekend sports shows. That's in addition to live sports segments in just about every newscast.

So how do you make our team?
• BE a highly motivated sports JOURNALIST, not a highlight reader. Break sports stories that others will follow.
• KNOW how to produce your own content on linear and digital. That's not just a 3 minute sports segment. Know how lay out a show rundown and get it on the air.
• DELIVER on the air in a compelling and conversational manner. Shout at the camera? Not a good fit for us.
