Our people make all the difference in our success.

The Digital Reporter/Producer will play a major role producing digitally exclusive content on our website http://www.wiproud.com.

Essential Duties and Responsibilities:

WLAX/WEUX-TV, the FOX affiliate in La Crosse, Wisconsin, seeks a digital-savvy storyteller, shooter, and editor who wants to produce great content. 

We want someone who works well independently, has good critical thinking skills, and who isn’t content to sit and wait for a public information officer to call you back. We want someone with strong writing and live skills, who can tell stories in a clear and compelling way, and who understands that way isn't always a straight package. Because the work will appear on our digital platforms, there’s no time limit, either. Stories don’t have to fit in a 1:30 box.


wiproud.com needs someone who's ambitious, willing to take risks and play a critical role in the WLAX/WEUX digital product.
