Multi-Skilled Journalist – 014102

  • Full Time
  • Anywhere




WFMY News 2 in Greensboro, NC is looking for a creative, driven and curious news reporter who can pitch, gather, write, edit and deliver their own stories, known in the newsroom as a “Multi-skilled Journalist”. MSJs are a key part of the newsroom’s coverage on both broadcast and digital platforms.

We need a Multi-Skilled Journalist to help add to the WFMY legacy, inspire change in our community and work with a dedicated team of journalists. We want someone who isn’t afraid to tackle complicated topics, someone who doesn’t just pitch stories straight from a news release and has the vision to broaden it out to show the larger context of why this story matters.

Most stories will be MSJ same day turns, while other times you’ll be given more time to execute your vision, or pair up with one of our talented photographers.

The successful candidate is a team player and newsroom leader with excellent interviewing and writing skills, and proven ability to skillfully ad lib in any live situation.

Any candidate for this job should understand that WFMY’s digital products are just as important as our broadcast product. We want someone who can write a great web story and be active on social media.

There's one more, very important thing. We are an equal opportunity employer. We search for amazing people of diverse backgrounds, experiences, abilities and perspectives. We take care of each other to create an inclusive work environment where we love to come to work every day.
