Location: South Region (inc. Fareham, Portslade, Whitstable and Reading)
Broadcast Journalist – Fixed Term Contract
We need a reporter who can get out and about in the South Region and find the big stories. You’ll be the sort of person who relishes being at the scene of a story and you’ll be comfortable reporting live and speaking to the key players. News happens 24/7 and this isn’t a ‘normal’ office job. Along with the rest of the team across the South, you’ll cover all big local stories.
What you’ll be doing: Working to the Regional News Editor you’ll play a key role in helping ensure our local bulletins reflect Global and Ofcom’s guidelines for each particular brand. As a member of the regional news centre, you’ll be creating high quality, relevant, timely and accurate local news across the region. You’ll play a vital role in any major news events regionally and on our national news talk brand, LBC. You’ll be using a full range of social and multi-media tools available to deliver a successful multi-platform news experience for audiences.
You’ll have these skills and experience: You’ll be confident doing live reports, writing scripts, gathering audio and reflecting events across multiple platforms. You'll help deliver, using multi-media and social media, exclusive content and stories across different platforms with the aim of producing potentially award winning coverage. You’ll aspire to producing outstanding writing and presentation of exciting news and current affairs on air, online and on social media, within brand style guidelines. You will also have Media Law qualifications. On top of that, you’ll be someone who is passionate about bringing stories to life from across the South region. You’ll be the sort of person that thrives on that phone call early in the morning to go a breaking news story anywhere in the patch. You will have a main base in the South but as stories require you’ll also be working out of our other Broadcast Centres in Fareham, Whitstable, Portslade and Reading.
And of course you’ll demonstrate our Global behaviours:- · Straight talking and sincere · Love to Deliver · Obsessive about detail · Strive to do it differently
