Heritage WOWO Looking For News Anchor
Fort Wayne, Indiana’s #1 radio station, a 50,000 watt news, weather and talk service station has a rare opening for a full-time News Anchor to join our Marconi winning team.
If you’re hard working, have a dynamic personality, strong news delivery, likes to work in a multi-person newsroom, have successful interactions with on-air partners and want to work for a station the community adores and loves, we’re looking for you. We’re one of Indiana’s premiere news stations celebrating 90 years in the community -- and with a 50,000 watt AM signal with a FM simulcast, we’re the most listened to station in our market.
WOWO was awarded a Marconi by the National Association of Broadcasters as Medium Market Station of the Year, as well as Station of the Year by the Indiana Broadcasters Association. Understanding the heritage and history of these call letters are a must.
Responsibilities include news anchoring, reporting breaking news, attending sporting events, being an active member of a fully staffed newsroom and possibly fill-in hosting duties. An ideal candidate is energetic, efficient and capable of multi-tasking in a lively fast paced environment. This sometimes requires weekend and evening hours, both on the street and in the radio station if breaking news and weather permits. WOWO is also unique because of a local TV partnership. We simulcast 1 hour every weekday morning on our local NBC affiliate, as well as live TV traffic updates in the afternoon. This means future candidates must be comfortable with frequent TV exposure.
You’ll also be working with one of the best crews in the business. To be considered, please send a resume / audio via e-mail to Operations Manager Ryan Wrecker: email@example.com or mail your stuff to Ryan Wrecker, WOWO Radio, 2915 Maples Road, Fort Wayne, Indiana 46816. No phone calls please.
