Description




About Gray Television:


Gray Television is a leading media company that owns and operates high-quality stations in 113 television markets that collectively reach 36 percent of US television households. 


We constantly strive for excellence. Through upgrading to the latest technology and seeking new ways to stay on top in our markets, we focus on training and development of the best and brightest employees in the business. 


About WSAZ:


WSAZ covers a wide, diverse area comprised of three states. Many small towns sit along the Ohio River and smaller rivers and streams that run through rolling hills. Our viewers and customers are extremely friendly and down-to-earth. Although we're not a major metropolitan region, the WSAZ market enjoys relatively close proximity to many large eastern cities, and is easily accessible by interstate, rail, river and air.


We enjoy all four seasons, and the activities that come with each. Nature is always a short distance away, with many surrounding state parks and lakes for recreation. Within the larger towns and cities, there is a vibrant night life with many outstanding restaurants and local festivals throughout the year.


Since 1949, WSAZ has been the overwhelming number one choice for Breaking News, Severe Weather coverage and information in western West Virginia, eastern Kentucky, and southern Ohio. Generations of residents have grown up counting on WSAZ to be a window to their world on-air and now digitally. Our people, on-air and behind the scenes, are trusted friends and neighbors in the community. There is a culture within our walls that recognizes the responsibility we carry, to continue what was started more than sixty years ago. We take pride in our ratings, our content, our status, and the need to maintain the work ethic that got us to where we are.


There has always been a family atmosphere at WSAZ. We care about each other, and know that we are stronger as one team than as many individuals. We take our jobs seriously, and know that we can be successful and have fun at the same time.


Job Summary/Description:


For more than 70 years, WSAZ has been a constant in the lives of our viewers, but we have to give them reasons to watch – local weather they can’t find anywhere else.  Our viewers embrace our talent because we show them we care. WSAZ is looking to continue that tradition as it hires a new meteorologist.

* Produce high quality, personal and accurate forecasts
* Create state of the art graphics that effectively tell the weather story of the day and what’s to come

* Passion for severe weather
* Must be willing to work alternate hours when needed for severe weather coverage
* Ability to do live shots and deliver weather coverage that informs and keeps viewers engaged
* Must be involved in community and signature station events
* Be a team player


Qualifications/Requirements:


◾ The candidate must have a strong knowledge of meteorology with an emphasis on accuracy and personalized forecasts.  The candidate will see plenty of opportunities to grow with regular feedback and on-site training with our team of meteorologists with combined decades of experience.  Our tri-state area experiences four seasons with a variety of severe weather, including heavy rain, snow and high winds.  The candidate must be a leader who brings energy, confidence and personality to our newscasts and newsroom.  We’re looking for a passionate person who’s willing to learn about our community and get involved.
