Job description:
We are looking for someone who can use the art of videography to convey the essence of a story through compelling imagery, natural sound, and engaging interviews.

Our photojournalists most often team-up with reporters to pursue stories of importance and interest to the Omaha market. But the winning candidate also will be able to set out alone on occasion to collect the video and information needed to create memorable television and digital content.

Our next photojournalist will care about proper lighting and have an eye for shooting a story in a way that distinguishes KETV NewsWatch 7 from the competition every day.

We want photojournalists who are self-starters—eager to be first, and best.

KETV NewsWatch 7 photojournalists are engaged in the latest technology, dedicated to being correct and first, and skilled at working on tight deadlines when stories break late. Time-management is crucial.

Photojournalists must be skilled at editing with Adobe Premiere, either at the station or in the field, and they must be passionate about distributing video on digital platforms and social media.

Above all, the winning candidate must be a team player, ready to join a vibrant newsroom community.

KETV will give special consideration to any candidate with an interest in occasional work on the assignment desk.

All KETV employees must provide proof of a COVID-19 vaccination.
