Sports Anchor/Reporter, Spokane, WA

#1 Post by Jon Chelesnik » Fri Jun 19, 2020 10:06 am

It’s time to join the big leagues! SWX-TV, the local sports leader based in Spokane, is looking for someone to join our cast of four sports anchors/reporters. This person will co-host our nightly half-hour sports show, as well as cover local sports.

SWX is one of the premier sportscasting destinations in the country, producing content for a 24-hour sports cycle and contributing to nightly sportscasts for KHQ-TV, the local NBC affiliate. We know the return of sports will be epic and SWX is ready to provide the most comprehensive coverage of all our teams when they return. The scope of our coverage extends to Gonzaga basketball, as well as Big Sky football and basketball at Eastern Washington & Idaho. We also regularly broadcast live sporting events for the Western Hockey League and Short-Season Class-A baseball, while also producing programming for various Coaches Shows. All-in-all we produce hundreds of live events each year.

The ideal candidate will be able to anchor, report, shoot, and edit sports, and have opportunities for live sideline reporting. If you love covering sports and want the opportunity to do it at every level - pro, college, and high school - this is your dream job. You will have the opportunity to cover the Pac-12 with Washington State less than 90 minutes away, and we've been known to go big in live coverage of the Final 4, Super Bowl, U.S. Open, and other national sporting events.

Please indicate in your cover letter you learned of this opportunity through Sportscasters Talent Agency of America. Send demo, resume and references to:

John Fritz
Station Manager

No phone calls please.
