Weekend Meteorologist/ Multi- Media Journalist

Job Description

WTAP is looking for a Weekend Meteorologist/MMJ.

The person will also report news three days a week. Our MMJ’s are also asked to be able to enterprise 2 original/workable news stories for coverage each day. Candidates will use TVUs.
The successful candidate must be detail oriented, organized and an effective leader/communicator in the newsroom.
The shift runs Wednesday - Sunday, hours vary. The position works some extra hours for weather & news coverage.


General Responsibilities:


• This position is responsible for preparing and delivering accurate and reliable weather reports over multiple platforms
• Prepare and deliver urgent weather updates, interrupting regular programming as necessary
• Report and/or produce for news three days a week
• Write and produce content for multiple media platforms
