KSAT12 News is looking for a dynamic Traffic Anchor/Reporter to join our top-rated morning show team.
As one of the fastest-growing cities in the country, traffic in San Antonio is a problem that’s only intensifying. This is a chance to help San Antonio drivers who are time-starved, travel-weary, and need solutions to work their way around trouble spots and construction zones across the city and in the growing outlying communities. As KSAT’s traffic expert, you’ll need to build relationships with local transportation leaders, understand the highway and street-level projects that affect drivers across our viewing area, and pitch stories related to transportation and mobility.
This is not an entry-level position. The right candidate is no stranger to a working newsroom and thrives on a fast-paced work environment with intense deadlines. This is a live anchor position, where you’ll be front and center at least ten times each day during Good Morning San Antonio. So, you’ll have to be comfortable on camera, on set with our other news anchors, and be comfortable working in front of a chromakey wall.
While you’ll be part of the morning news team, you’ll work independently to build your own traffic graphics using our WSI Max system. In addition to your broadcast duties, you’ll also write digital stories and social media posts for people on the go to build viewer engagement and keep them moving through their day.
After GMSA ends, you’ll work on enterprise transportation and travel-related content that may be featured in other newscasts or promoted for future GMSA broadcasts.
· 3-5 years of experience in a news environment

· Experience reporting on-camera and writing for multiple platforms (broadcast, web, social media)
· Excellent interpersonal and communication skills
· A College degree in journalism/communications is preferred
· Prior WSI Max software experience preferred
Any offer of employment is conditional upon the successful completion of a pre-employment drug screening, investigative background check, employment/education verifications and reference checks.
