Sports Reporter/Host, Minneapolis, MN

#1 Post by Jon Chelesnik » Wed Jun 22, 2022 10:19 am

FOX9 KMSP in Minneapolis, MN is accepting applications for a Sports Reporter/Host.

We don’t have to tell you: Local TV sports departments are shrinking, not adding.

Well, not here at FOX 9/KMSP in Minneapolis/St. Paul. We are THE local television sports leader in the Twin Cities and growing every year. Just look at our line-up card:

* We are the Official Home of the Minnesota Vikings. From the Draft to Training Camp, preseason to post-season…we do partnership shows with the Vikings Entertainment Network year around. Check us out by searching “Vikings Game Day Live” or “Vikings Postgame Tonight” on You Tube.

* We have a marquee official partnership with the University of Minnesota. It’s “The PJ Fleck Show”, with the nationally known coach, for 5 months out of the year. And we don’t care whether Gophers are on our air or not, we do a football pre-game show every week. After football season, we turn our attention to Gopher men’s and women’s basketball along with hockey.

* Twins or Timberwolves make the playoffs? Live, in the field sports shows are a gimme. AAA Baseball is on FOX 9+ with the St. Paul Saints.

* And 52 weeks a year we produce 3 live weekend sports shows. That’s in addition to live sports segments in just about every newscast.

So how do you make our team?

* BE a highly motivated sports JOURNALIST, not a highlight reader. Break sports stories that others will follow.

* KNOW how to produce your own content on linear and digital. That’s not just a 3 minute sports segment. Know how lay out a show rundown and get it on the air.

* DELIVER on the air in a compelling and conversational manner. Shout at the camera? Not a good fit for us.

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