Host, Local Morning Edition

Salt Lake City, UT



KUER is looking for a curious and engaging journalist to serve as host and board operator during morning drive-time programming, "Morning Edition.” As one of the station’s main on-air personalities, this person works with the news director and station manager to shape the editorial direction, promotion strategy and sound of the station’s morning drive daypart. The host adheres to deadlines and, in concert with appropriate staff, makes timely and effective decisions in situations requiring prompt attention. They follow the station programming log, deliver weather forecasts and write and anchor multiple newscasts per day (including material contributed by KUER news staff). The host also identifies, produces and edits engaging two-way interviews for local “Morning Edition.” The Morning Edition team includes a producer who assists with content production and serves as the fill-in host as necessary.
