Job Description

About WLUC:

WLUC has been a fixture in Upper Michigan for 60 years. The #1 rated WLUC is a market leader and an NBC affiliate. The younger FOX UP News is #2 in this competitive six station market.

The U.P. is a recreational paradise. Winter, summer, spring or fall, if you enjoy the outdoors, this is the place for you. Ten minutes from anywhere, you'll find a trail, river, lake or event to capture your desire. The small town setting is peaceful and safe, but still has the big city entertainment and dining experiences. But it's the people of Upper Michigan that make this area stand out. They're friendly, helpful, honest and fun.
