Job Description

Are you tired of cranking out those 1:00-1:30 stories? Wouldn’t you love to take a little more time to let your story breathe? Ready to break free from the traditional news program and try something different? KARE 11, a TEGNA-owned station in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, is seeking a highly-skilled, talented Reporter with a passion for storytelling to join Jana Shortal and our Breaking the News (BTN) team.

We also want a journalist who thrives on and understands digital platforms.
