Job Opportunities

Anchor/Producer/Reporter (Minot)


KMOT-TV, the NBC affiliate in Minot, North Dakota, and the Minot-area’s only locally-broadcast 6 and 10 p.m. newscast, has an immediate opening for a full-time Anchor/Producer/Reporter.

This position gives a journalist the opportunity to work in all three main areas of on-air broadcasting—reporting in the field (including opportunities for live shots), ‘stacking’ a newscast, and delivering the news on-air in prime time. The position offers invaluable experience for someone looking to ‘cut their teeth’ in television news. It also gives the candidate an opportunity to grow as a leader in the newsroom and become a ‘face in the community.’

Minot is a wonderful place to work in television—a family-oriented community that offers the perks of a metropolitan area. The city hosts the North Dakota State Fair each year, and features a lively downtown, an accredited university featuring Div.-II athletics, the state’s largest airport terminal, and one of the country’s largest ethnic festivals in ‘Norsk Hostfest.’ The community debunks the ‘small town’ premise by playing a pivotal role in the United States—feeding America through agriculture, fueling America through the oil industry, and defending America with Minot Air Force Base.

General responsibilities:
-Co-anchor the 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. newscasts, Monday through Friday
-Produce the 10 p.m. newscast
-Report on stories throughout the week and fulfill assignments as given
-Use social media in reporting as a way to promote a ‘digital first’ attitude
-Participate in daily editorial meetings and cultivate story ideas
-Represent the station at public events

Qualifications:
-A good attitude, FIRST AND FOREMOST
-A Journalism/Broadcasting degree, or similar line of education, from a four-year university
-A résumé tape, or ‘reel,’ exhibiting one’s work, including standups, anchor samples, live shot experience, etc.
-Previous television work experience is not a requirement but is preferred and encouraged
-A general knowledge of the use of television news cameras (P2, Sony, etc.)
-A general knowledge of newscast production systems (ENPS, iNews, etc.)
-A general knowledge of non-linear video editing systems (Edius, Final Cut, Premier, etc.)
-A general knowledge of using social media for reporting (Facebook live, Twitter, etc.)
-The willingness to be ‘called in’ during non-working hours if needed when news breaks
-The ability to follow instructions as given, accept constructive criticism as a way to improve, and respect others’ ideas
-The ability to carry 20 to 30 pounds of equipment
-A good driving record
