Description:

WDAY, the #1 station in Fargo, North Dakota is looking for a Morning Anchor/Producer.  Join our Emmy award-winning 8-person First News team working in our multi-platform newsroom.  

Responsibilities:

WDAY is an award-winning station taking home six Emmys and two national Edward R. Murrow awards in the last 4 years. We are a locally owned and operated station covering North Dakota and western Minnesota.  We produce over 30 hours of local news each week and have a staff of 40 journalists working in our news, weather and sports departments.  Our recently remodeled newsroom includes spacious new work stations, a makeup room with individualized spaces for personal supplies, meeting spaces and a hangout area complete with couches and televisions.  Here is how WDAY invests in you:

1.       We offer opportunities to grow – we like to promote from within.

2.       We will invest in you with ongoing training and individual coaching sessions with our Magid consultant team.                                                                   

3.       We offer a good work environment with veteran staff to help you grow and advance.

4.       We have an on-site gym for you to use that is accessible 24-hours a day.

5.       You will qualify for a monthly cell phone reimbursement allowance of up to $40.

 

Our former employees have used their experience at WDAY to obtain jobs in much larger markets.  We currently have WDAY trained journalists working in Detroit, Michigan; Phoenix, Arizona; Albuquerque, New Mexico; Grand Rapids, Michigan; Tampa Bay, Florida; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; and Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio.   

A little about the Fargo/Moorhead area: Fargo is the largest city in North Dakota and borders Moorhead, Minnesota.  The metro population is over 240,000.  Fargo has a vibrant downtown with activities geared towards young professionals like yourself.  The communities have plenty of options for shopping – from local specialty shops to major retailers.

Thank you for taking the time to read about what we have to offer and I look forward to hearing from you.  If you are not interested in doing an interview, please let me know that as well.
