NEWS REPORTER – INDIANA
Terre Haute – Evansville

Midwest Communications – Indiana is seeking a passionate, enthusiastic and creative News Reporter to help grow our Indiana brand in Evansville and Terre Haute! This position will be based in Evansville, IN.
Preferred candidates will have strong on-air communications and digital story-telling skills. The candidate must display a strong news judgement, solid copy writing skills, and must be digitally proficient and capable of editing, writing, and creating web content.

Knowing how to Facebook Live and post to Instagram and having a knack for web visuals/videos is required. In this position, you are a multi-media journalist that delivers the information through whichever medium the audience needs it.
Our news team writes long form stories for the web and multiple condensed versions of each story to rotate on-air. So, the ability to write tightly is an attribute we will be prioritizing. The chosen candidate will know what it means, from an on-air standpoint, to talk to the audience and not at the audience.
If you have a passion for keeping the communities you serve up to speed and relish the opportunity to tell the stories that affect our daily lives, our reporter position may be for you! The position does require a valid driver’s license and a good driving record.
