The WLOX First Alert Weather team needs a new full-time Meteorologist to build on what we already do.
We want somebody who understands weather and can communicate that knowledge on every WLOX platform. A full working knowledge of WSI/MAX products & Live Wire is necessary. Strong, creative graphics building skills are required to tell South Mississippi's weather story on WLOX News Now, on the WLOX Weather app, and on Facebook Live.
The candidate should also have strong reporting skills as well the ability to write a blog we'll post on our digital platforms. Because we're in the middle of a hurricane zone, severe weather experience is a must. Candidate must be able to communicate in a calm and reassuring manner during very stressful situations. Accurate weather forecasting with a strong science background should be demonstrated. A creative, fresh presentation as well as severe weather examples should be included on any demo reel submitted.
Candidate must bring professionalism, energy, confidence and personality to our newscasts and our newsroom. These responsibilities and skills apply on-air, all social media platforms as well as wlox.com, Facebook & Twitter. A college degree is required.
Qualified applicants, please apply online (Raycom Media Careers) and attach your cover letter with resume and references, and a link to your work explaining why we should hire you. No phone calls please. EOE-M/F/D/V
