Ms. Julie Bednarek
Full Time
FOX 6 is seeking a creative multi-tasking photojournalist to join our team, specifically for our locally produced morning program Real Milwaukee. If you’re just looking to be assigned stories to shoot every day, this isn’t the job for you. In this role, you are not only a photojournalist you are a field producer as well. The expectations will be that you take ownership of the remote portion of the show. Field producing live shots requires thinking (and running) on your feet. You have to be able to plan the live shots and then troubleshoot them if they don’t go according to that plan. The right candidate needs to have good judgment and personality because with Real Milwaukee, it’s not just about the live shot—it’s about cultivating relationships.

You need to have a passion to tell hyper local stories, whether it’s about a special person, crazy cool place or unique event. This is also a physical job. You have to be willing to climb trees, swim under water, snow ski down a hill and possibly even do a barrel roll in a jet to get the right shot.

This is not a job for beginners-you need at least two years experience working in commercial television news. And if you’ve already been working in the biz, you know there’s no such thing as “9 to 5” so be prepared to be flexible with your hours. A bachelor’s degree is strongly preferred. You must have a clean driving record (we will check!) and a Wisconsin Driver’s license. You must be physically able to lift, carry and handle camera gear while dealing with the realities of a Wisconsin winter or summer. If you want to work at a place where hard work, a strong sense of team and creativity is rewarded, this is the place.

No phone calls please. WITI is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
