Overview

NEWS ANCHOR/REPORTER – WMBD AM/FM Radio – Peoria, IL

WMBD AM/FM and wmbdradio.com is looking for a News Anchor/Reporter for our active newsroom in Peoria, Illinois.

We’re looking for someone who thinks beyond traditional mindsets – who is open to, and can contribute to, strategies to help re-shape how we do things – who understands the media ecosystem has changed immensely, and that we need to adjust to new expectations from news consumers.

The right candidate will have many of these capabilities, among others:

  • Report, write, and present quality local content over multiple platforms.
  • Natural instinct to “own” breaking-news situations.
  • Desire to be on the scene to draw listeners into the story/experience.
  • Good at being organized, telling stories, being naturally inquisitive, and able to embrace new technologies.
  • Breed and foster newsmaker contacts.
  • Ability to talk “to” the audience in a conversational way, and not “at” the audience with typical news-speak.

We offer a competitive salary and a full benefits package. A valid driver’s license and a good driving record are required for this position. This position will require some on-call duties and work on some weekends.

Send a demo of your best work along with resume and examples of your writing style to jobs.peoria@mwcradio.com or mail to 331 Fulton Street, 12th Floor, Peoria, IL 61602.

Midwest Communications is proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer by choice.
