TEGNA Inc - Beaumont, TX

KBMT/K-JAC,  the #1 station in southeast Texas covering sports, is searching for our next Digital First SPORTS DIRECTOR. KBMT/K-JAC is in southeast Texas, the heart of Texas high school football, so you’ll be covering plenty of the country’s future stars. Our viewers also want to know about Lamar University, the Houston Astros, Texans and Rockets with the Bayou City being in our back yard. By the way, you’ll dominate Friday nights, with our 45 minute high school football highlight show.\\rIn our newsroom, sports isn’t just about reading the highlights. We are looking for a leader who will grow a long tradition of sports coverage on television and online. You’ll need to demonstrate that you can generate exclusive content before, during and after the game, owning the sports story on-air and online. You’ll embrace our Digital First philosophy: break news on the web, push it on social, and add texture on television. Our Sports Director helps manage our coverage, maintains the sports daybook, and provides direction and input on those sports stories that so often, merge into news. In the newsroom, you’ll organize and guide. Outside, you’ll tell stories and build relationships. As a newsroom, we believe in big, showcased coverage, and so should you. You’ll work with award-winning newscast producers to help enhance your story-telling. We are not afraid to venture out into the big cities, as we’ve covered the Super Bowl, Opening Day and other major sporting events. The right candidate knows winning is hard work and you’ll be expected to own the coverage on digital, and in news and sports.
