Reporter/Multimedia Journalist

WCBI-TV has an immediate opening for a full-time Reporter/Multimedia Journalist.

We want someone ready to learn how to tell a story and learn why journalism matters to our community. Our next MMJ will be creative, self-starting, ready to learn and be a positive newsroom leader.
We want someone who can tell a story by writing to their video and using sound to enhance the quality of their story-telling ability.

Our candidate will need to have a can-do, positive attitude, work independently on deadlines, and be willing to learn through critiques.

WCBI’s next multi-media journalist will also be active on social media and generate content for our award-winning website.

This is a great market to begin your career. In north Mississippi and west Alabama, you will cover every type of weather event, sporting events, and impactful community-based stories.
