The fulltime position will entail three reporting days — Wednesday, Thursday and Friday — in the bureau, located at Skidmore College, and Saturday and Sunday anchoring duties in WAMC’s Albany studios.
The reporting weekdays will follow an 8 a.m.-5 p.m. schedule, with some flexibility as news dictates. The weekend days will require morning regional newscasts, beginning at 5 a.m. Saturday and 7 a.m. Sunday, and live anchoring of Midday Magazine at noon. Working under the news director and associate news director as part of a multi-state reporting team, the candidate will file in-depth regional news and feature stories in communities in and around Saratoga Springs, Glens Falls, Lake George, Clifton Park, Gloversville, Johnstown, Queensbury, and other localities. In addition to full-length enterprise stories and special series assignments, reporting duties include filing daily voicers, select 1-on-1 interviews, and web updates, as well as breaking news, fund drive, and other responsibilities.
As weekend anchor, the candidate, in concert with the news director and associate news director, will plan, produce, report and track features, in-studio news segments, and other segments to air as part of Midday Magazine. The candidate may also be called upon to cover additional air shifts and newscasts seven days a week as needed.
