Posted 30 July 2017, 7.29am edt
That's Thames Valley, part of That’s TV, is the brand new TV channel for the Thames Valley now live on Freeview channel 7 (the slot recently vacated by BBC Three) across the Royal County of Berkshire and surrounding areas.
That's Thames Valley is now recruiting Video Journalists to deliver news reports and features in one of the fastest growing regions of the UK.
That’s Thames Valley is based in the centre of Reading. The station seeks multi-skilled journalists seeking to make a big name for themselves in a local TV station with a ‘big city’ mentality before moving their careers onto the national stage.
You will be an important part of the core production team delivering a major local news and entertainment service on TV and online.
This isn’t your standard 9 to 5. You will setup, shoot and edit your own packages and help write and produce the station's daily news magazine shows. There will also be opportunities to present on-screen.
This is a rare opportunity for exceptional candidates to gain significant experience in TV reporting and presenting. That's Thames Valley will, in common with all That’s TV channels, also enter into a contract to share its news footage with the BBC.
That's Thames Valley is seeking proven journalists who will bin the press releases and go out and find their own challenging news stories and features which tug at the heart-strings.
