Job Summary/Description:  

Are you looking to get your start in broadcasting a market that experiences all weather scenarios? Are you curious about the world around you and interested in telling stories that have an impact?  KTTC-TV in Rochester, Minnesota, is ready for you to join our team!

Our coverage area of southeast Minnesota and northeast Iowa sees snow, rain, tornadoes, derechos, floods, and more. We’re the perfect market to get your start and grow as a professional broadcast meteorologist. The KTTC First Alert Weather team is looking for someone who loves weather. This person will primarily forecast on-air on weekends and work in the news department turning content during the week. This meteorologist will work closely with our Chief Meteorologist, news management, and producers to craft engaging and dynamic forecasts.

An ideal candidate will have a firm understanding that weather impacts all parts of our lives. Forecasting at the green screen in studio isn’t their only responsibility. Climate change is real and will be the story this generation covers their entire lives. Weather happens outside the studio and this meteorologist will have a strong desire to get out and tell those impactful stories. In their role as an MMJ, a successful candidate will work to find those stories at the intersection of climate change and our lives, be curious about their community, and work with other news staff to create impactful content. We're also looking for someone who can create unique weather content viewers would like to see on Roku, AppleTV, Amazon Fire, our weather app, and our website. Experience with WSI graphics systems is a plus. Experience in reporting, shooting, and editing will set you apart from other applicants, but not required.

Duties/Responsibilities include (but are not limited to):

• Analyze weather data and prepare an accurate forecast
• Cover severe and breaking weather situations across all platforms
• Post weather content to station website, social media accounts, apps, and streaming devices
• Flexibility in scheduling to cover severe weather or fill-in for other weather team members
• Strong time management skills

Qualifications/Requirements:

• Applicable experience in the field of meteorology
