WKOW-TV, Madison's ABC affiliate, has an immediate opening for a main anchor.  We need an energetic journalist who greets each day with a smile, determination to win and team attitude.  The anchor we are looking for is a newsroom leader with a passion for journalism, a competitive spirit, and a willingness to personally invest in maintaining and improving the quality of our product.  WKOW is a DuPont, Morrow and Emmy winning news organization.  We are looking for an active contributor to that excellence.  News readers need not apply.


The person we hire will have at least 3 to 5 years of anchoring experience along with an extensive background in live field anchoring and reporting. Do you know how to ask tough questions?
