Job Description
KDAF CW33, Dallas/Ft. Worth seeks an experienced multimedia journalist to produce content for a pair of unique and original lifestyle shows. You'll be on the ground floor (but moving upward!) of the creation of new and different programming, have your work showcased in the fifth largest media market, and have ALL the FUN in the world doing it!

You'll tell local stories YOUR way, while staying within a brand focused on ALL things ''FUN''. The RIGHT person will produce, report, shoot, edit, etc. (you know the drill) across all platforms in a fun and creative way.

Bringing ideas, connections, social media skills and a ''life of the party'' personality to an already outgoing team of professionals, is a MUST.

You'll win by having a ''can do'', ''will do'', ''already did it'' attitude and a desire to create content that looks at the world a little differently... provided you have a reel to prove it. If you're tired of having SOME fun, now is the time to step up to ALL FUN.

Nexstar Media Group owned KDAF, located in the home market of the largest local broadcasting company in the United States, is one of the world's leading diversified media companies.

• Receive assignments and evaluate leads and tips to develop story ideas.
• Check reference materials for accuracy in stories.
• Revise work to meet editorial approval or fit time requirements.
• Ensure that all content meets company standards for production quality.
• Perform special projects and other duties as assigned.

Requirements & Skills:
• Must have excellent ''wordsmith'' skills.

• Superior, outgoing on-air presence & personality.
• Excellent communication skills with the ability to ad lib when required.
• Skilled in the use of technical broadcast equipment.
