KOAA/News 5 Sports, the #1 NBC affiliate in the beautiful Colorado Springs is looking for a seasoned sports professional that can lead our sports efforts. You will be the main evening sports anchor and direct the efforts of the sports team. You must be an MMJ and a multi-platform story teller who can engage new tv and digital users through “must-see” content. If you are looking to show just highlights, this is not the job for you.
Colorado Springs is Olympic City USA and borders Denver’s professional sports franchises (Broncos, Rockies, AV’s and Nuggets) less than an hour away – this is a dream sports job for those with a vision.
The successful candidate must be a leader and a team player who understands what it means to be a guardian of your work, our station and our community. You must be able to enterprise compelling stories, shoot, edit and produce. A college degree and at least 3-5 years of experience are preferred (preferably as a Sports Director) and experience with ENPS and EDIUS editing systems is a plus. You must also be able to accommodate a flexible M-SU schedule.
We work hard, we play to win, and we love what we do. If you’re working at the wrong station or you are ready to move up, come join us in our state-of-the-art facility!
Please send your resume, cover letter, link of your reel and your most recent unedited sportscast to firstname.lastname@example.org . Please put “Sports Director Job” in the subject line.
KOAA is an equal opportunity employer.
