The reasons why so many people want to work on-camera are simple; you can be the voice of authority for an entire region, investigate interesting stories, meet incredible people and even better… get recognized when you go to the dry cleaners.

Working on camera isn’t as simple as writing a story and reading it on air, a multitude of skills are necessary to succeed. To be hired for this job as a Sports Anchor/Reporter, you must be able to shoot and edit video, write clearly and concisely, produce content for broadcast and online and enhance your personal brand through social media.

Working on camera requires you to climb the “market ladder” – no one starts out in Chicago at market #3, they start in Utica (#172), then move up to Savannah (#92) then Memphis (#49) and so on and so on. This opportunity we are featuring is a great starting point for someone just breaking in, or a step up for someone currently in Market 175 or higher.

When you are selecting a market you want to find a place that fits your skills and gives you a chance to cover high profile events, that way you can develop an impressive demo reel. This opening is in the heart of SEC country and near enough to a major city that there will be opportunities to cover professional sports.
