WAVE-TV in Louisville, Kentucky is seeking a full-time Reporter/Multi-Media Journalist to cover some of the nation's most interesting politics. 


Our political reporter will cover Kentucky politics daily during legisative sessions and year round, as well as reporting on Kentucky and Indiana leaders on the national political scene.  We need someone who can stay on top of complex issues, break stories ahead of the competition, and report all sides of controversial subjects in a way that's aggressive but fair.   This role may include hosting weekly political roundtable segments, as well as breaking news and general assignment reporting when necessary.


Online reporting will be a major part of this reporter's responsibilities, so mastery of digital and social tools is a must.   The successful candidate must also be able to write, shoot, edit, and present strong stories on video.  This reporter must be skilled in all phases of storytelling, and thus ready to work alone in the field as required.  


Applicants must possess a four-year college degree and strong social media skills.  Two years experience is preferred.


If you want to be a part of an award winning aggressive newsroom that makes a difference in its community, then apply online and upload your resume, references, and work examples. Must have a valid driver’s license and a good driving record and pass a drug test.  No phone calls please.  EOE-M/F/D/V
