WIBW Radio in Topeka, the Kansas capital, is looking for a news reporter/anchor to join our team — the largest radio news department in the state!
There are a lot of exciting things happening here. Both our stations, WIBW 580 AM and The Big 94.5 Country, are market leaders in radio. We also operate the Kansas Information and Agriculture Networks for more than 40 affiliates throughout the state.
Plus, we’re in the process of acquiring a third station that’s already housed in our facility, which is just 12 years old.
But this Kansas radio giant’s not just radio — you can’t be to compete in media today. Our website‘s packed with text, audio and video.
WIBW’s director of digital media’s created for the Discovery Channel and other major companies, and he’s leading a drive to take our digital production to the next level. Our staff’s equipped with iPhones and iPads with more equipment on the way.
We need someone who can write shorter, sharper and stronger, just like Mervin Block. Candidates should be social media savvy and driven to create web packages of text, audio and video.
A strong on-air presence is mandatory. Candidates without such won’t be considered. You must be a self-starter and have professional experience.
We are NOT seeking sports journalists. We need a dedicated newsperson. If that’s you, send your resume, audio sample/aircheck, writing samples and any video work to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a website or blog, please send links to those.
