#1 Post by Jon Chelesnik » Thu Oct 17, 2019 11:36 am

WSET ABC 13 in Lynchburg, VA is accepting applications for a sports director.

We are looking for an experienced professional who can give our viewers an experience beyond the X's and O's of your typical sports segment and knows how to find the stories that will appeal to people who might not be a sports fan. You must be a charismatic anchor, excellent story teller and a strong leader. The Sports Director coordinates our college, NASCAR and high school sports coverage.

Our area is home to the Martinsville Speedway, Virginia Tech, University of Virginia, Liberty University, several minor league baseball teams and dozens of high schools. You will be required to produce daily content on a variety of platforms including the internet and social networks, along with performing other duties as assigned by the news managers.

The Sports Director produces his/her own segments for the 6 and 11 weekday newscasts.

Please indicate in your cover letter you learned of this opportunity through Sportscasters Talent Agency of America.
