NewsWest 9, an NBC affiliate in Midland, TX, is looking for a morning meteorologist to join our team. Must have a passion for forecasting, tracking, and alerting viewers to changing weather; and know that change is a given. Few places can you go from sunny and 75 to sleet and a winchill in the teens. Severe weather spans two seasons here with an active dryline, MCSs, supercells, and tornadoes. The area spans 19 Texas-size counties and features varied terrain including the state’s only mountain range to scrub dessert to low rolling plains. Each produces its own share of forecasting challenges.
Mornings means early and often, telling a compelling weather story as folks get ready to head out the door to work or to the bus stop. Being an integral part of the team who can assist with preparing graphics, live reporting, severe weather coverage, and all on a multiplatform approach is key.
Qualified applicants, apply online and attach resume and link to your most recent work. No phone calls please. EOE-M/V/D/V
