PHOTOGRAPHER/EDITOR (P/T) - WKYT

About WKYT:

WKYT-TV is home to the CBS and CW affiliates in beautiful Lexington, KY. The station sits amongst picturesque horse farms in the Thoroughbred Capital of the World.

The Lexington DMA (#67) provides a competitive news environment and WKYT has emerged as the news leader, producing over 9.5 hours of news per day. Our team of award-winning professionals thrive in a fast-paced, yet fun, environment.

Lexington is home to a thriving downtown scene, phenomenal restaurants and breweries, and, of course, Keeneland Race Course, the most beautiful horse track you'll ever visit.

Job Summary/Description:

WKYT, home to Lexington's highest rated newscasts, is looking for a Part-Time Videographer/Editor. We are looking for someone who is a driven storyteller and knows photography is more than wide, medium, and tight shots. When it comes to a microphone, you use it as a tool for gathering sound and taking people to a place in time rather than just an object for sound bites.

As a News Editor we're looking for someone who can take a script, and make it sing with natural sound, tremendous visuals you've gathered in the field, or pulled from our visual journalists.

We've got all the tools you will need to succeed. From next generation cameras and laptop editors to a staff of talented Photographers, MMJ's, Reporters and Producers that all share a desire to tell great stories and be the best.

Qualifications/Requirements:

Job Duties include creative shooting and editing, being a self-starter, not being afraid to ask questions, having a can-do attitude, and being deadline driven.
