News Mississippi has an immediate opening for a Multimedia Journalist. We are the only statewide radio news network in Mississippi and we’re looking for individuals who can tell the stories that matter to our entire state. You don’t have to be a native Mississippian, but you must be able to get up to speed quickly on news, politics, sports and features that interest everyone in the state.
We are looking for excellent writers who are also storytellers with a great voice.
A successful candidate will be a self-starter who knows how to cultivate sources and contacts in order to develop fresh story ideas – every single day. You want to be the first to know about something, then turn around and tell your listeners. You are as comfortable interviewing the “Bird Man” as you would be the Governor or state legislators.
Our multimedia journalists develop, write and produce stories for radio, digital and social media.
Degree in journalism or related field preferred and experience is a plus – but if you’re a great writer, who knows how to ask the right questions and has a passion for news – then we’ll teach you the technical side of the job.
Are you ready and willing to get started?
