The Jim Pattison Broadcast Group
Looking for some REAL journalism experience? If you’re someone who wants to hone their skills with the help of qualified veteran journalists, the Jim Pattison Broadcast Group has an opportunity you won’t want to miss.
Our newsroom is looking to fill a reporter/anchor position in our Melfort newsroom with someone who has a passion for storytelling. We’ll help you refine your writing, photography, videography and broadcasting skills. We’ll even let you make mistakes and teach you how to fix them.
We understand the lure of the big city lights can be enticing – but you won’t find the experience you need to excel as a journalist by answering the phone, researching a story for someone else or making a coffee run for the newsroom. You will get that experience by covering local city council meetings, court cases, budgets, elections, sporting events and more by contributing radio and web material for a station that is part of the most read online news source in Saskatchewan. We have bureaus in Prince Albert, Melfort, North Battleford, Meadow Lake and La Ronge, SK. The journalists who have come through our doors have gone on to successful careers in larger markets because they were willing to do the work and receive the one-on-one guidance they wouldn’t get anywhere else.
Gain an edge over your competitors. Apply now.
You may be the Reporter/Anchor we’re looking for if:
- you understand the importance of “local” in local radio and bring ideas to work every day
- you have a degree, diploma or equivalent from a recognized broadcast program
- Sound knowledge of Canadian Press style
- you can present compelling content with personality
- you’re passionate about news and adept at all platforms, including engagement on the web and social media
- you have a strong broadcast voice
- willing to perform other duties as needed
