The Charlottesville Newsplex (home of CBS19, ABC16, WAHU FOX27, and newsplex.com) is looking for a Weekend Sports Anchor.
The ideal candidate will be able to hit the ground running in a competitive sports market. Previous shooting and editing experience is a must, professional on-air experience is a plus. The position involves anchoring at least twice a week, and reporting three days a week. Strong story-telling skills - not just churning out the scores and highlights, or re-writing the big national stories - are definitely required.
The Newsplex is the Flagship Station for University of Virginia Athletics. In addition to our daily sportscasts, we produce several specials each year dedicated to UVa sports. We also produce a live pre-game show before every UVa home football game. This season the men’s basketball team was a number one seed in the NCAA Tournament. The baseball team has a good chance of making it to the College World Series. The football team… well, we are hopeful for the 2014 season. While we are technically a “small” market, we cover big city sports and some travelling will be required. Charlottesville is also a strong market for high school sports with plenty of feature stories to be told.
