WENY News, the ABC, CBS and CW affiliate in Horseheads, New York has a future opening for a Sports multi-media journalist and anchor. You'll work under the supervision of the News and Sports Directors to provide compelling, energetic sportscasts each evening.
We're looking for a successful candidate who can operate as a multi-media journalist, and has a passion for sports at the local level. The right person for the job will also be a strong storyteller, both visually and journalistically.
As a member of our news team, you'll gain experience in many aspects of news coverage, from live opportunities, breaking sports news, to sports-related stories that tie into important community matters. You'll also receive feedback and coaching focused on professional development from long-time industry veterans and leaders in news media.
WENY prides itself on going beyond just sports highlights, digging up stories on local athletes that stand out in more ways than just their athletic ability.
The ideal candidate will become a well-known figure on the sidelines of local sporting events in the community. WENY also covers a number of professional sports, from NASCAR to NFL training camps.
Aside from daily newscasts, the WENY Sports team appears at a number of public appearances and community events. The Sports department is also responsible for providing content to the station's website and social media platforms.
