We service more than 40 counties across South Georgia, including two news bureaus in the cities of Tifton and Valdosta.
WALB-TV is looking for a host to help launch a new, lifestyle-focused broadcast in South Georgia's dominant #1 station.

The show features a combination of original reporting, live studio guests, sponsored content and interviews, trending and buzzworthy news, and pre-produced stories showcasing the very best our community has to offer. The ideal candidate thrives when working with a team, exhibits strong editorial judgment, and is willing to do what it takes to get the best story.
As a host, you'll lead and contribute to the show's editorial process, regularly create compelling enterprise content, develop story ideas and sources, and work with producers to generate innovative broadcasts that take intentional, creative risks. You will champion impactful storytelling while generating content for WALB newscasts, including regular enterprise reporting; working with or without a photojournalist to combine engaging video, meaningful sound, and relatable characters. Build contacts and sources throughout the community and with stakeholders while establishing a notable presence outside of the newscasts, both online and in the community.
