Job description

Weekend Weather Anchor/Meteorologist

WWNY/WNYF TV in Watertown NY has a rare opening on its weather staff for a weekend weather anchor/meteorologist who can also report three days a week.

We are the market's dominant news station, with a 60 year legacy of leading in news, sports and - in a busy winter market - weather. This is an ideal first job for a newly graduated meteorologist who has a passion for severe winter weather, a desire to work with brand new WSI/Weather Company equipment, and a talent for telling the weather story to the large rural audience who relies on us.

Qualifications include: degree in meteorology or a closely related field; professional certification or progress toward professional certification; familiarity with broadcast weather systems; professional appearance and delivery; detailed understanding of various models for weather forecasting; basic familiarity with camera operation and the fundamentals of journalism.

The weekend weather anchor is the main back up for our weeknight and weekday morning weather anchors, and when not handling weather duties in-house will be expected to generate weather-related news stories, do live weather reporting, as well as cover other news and sports. Some personal appearances/representing the station is mandatory.

In addition, the successful candidate will play a key role in helping to shape our online weather content. We offer a beautiful outdoor lifestyle, competitive pay and benefits, and a small, family-owned company that still values community involvement and truly local news.
