Description:

Quincy Media’s ABC affiliate in Peoria is looking for a high-energy sports director who oversees the department as the chief sports anchor and content producer.

Responsibilities:

If you think a local sportscast is about highlights and scores this isn’t the job for you.  Our
next sports director is a true sports journalist with a passion for great storytelling.  This is not a job for someone who needs “down time”.  This position requires you to anchor, shoot, write, edit, produce, and coordinate coverage.

Requirements:

You need to demonstrate how you can aggressively use social media to engage and respond to our community and embrace the multi-platform approach of today’s newsroom.

Sports anchoring and reporting experience is required, along with a degree in journalism or communications. 

Contact:

If you’re a team-player with a drive to be the best, send your link, cover letter, resume and references to WEEK/HOI News Director Perry Boxx at pboxx@week.com

WEEK/HOI is an EEO.
