Montana Right Now is our statewide brand. The person hired into this position will serve as a weekend manager overseeing six statewide/regional weekend newscasts. You will work with the weekend producer to coordinate coverage by reporters across the State of Montana.
Montana Right Now can be seen in every television market in Montana which when combined using the 2020 Nielson DMA index would equal to the 81st television market in the country.
In short, this is not a position for beginners. We’ll use your expertise to craft coverage to truly capture Montana Right Now.
You’ll look for opportunities to lead with breaking news and weather. You’ll help our budding young reporters identify stories that are character driven and geared towards the Montana way of life.
During the week, you’ll also serve as a senior reporter turning in depth stories that could keep you on the road for hours at a time. Your mission will be to peel back the layers of issues impacting the communities across Montana and to get to the heart of a story.
As our senior reporter, you’ll be fronting the biggest stories impacting the region daily and will thrive during live breaking news coverage.
The weekend anchor will also serve as the primary fill-in anchor during the week.
