Traffic Anchor

Date Posted: 10/19/2019

Job Description

WVEC-TV is looking for a Traffic Anchor to own traffic for our morning show, 13News Now Daybreak.  Traffic in the Norfolk/Virginia Beach market is no joke.  Our miles of interstate, toll roads, drawbridges, and network of tunnels create chronic backups during morning commutes.  You’ll have to use our vast array of traffic tools, technology, and live cameras to navigate people around chokepoints.  But traffic isn’t all you’ll be handling.  We expect you to connect with our audience on social media, along with the rest of our Daybreak team.  That means you have to share your engaging personality, work well with our ensemble cast, and most importantly – be your authentic self!  The morning shift isn’t easy, so you must embrace early hours to help our viewers wake up with a smile.  After the show, you’ll be responsible for turning daily content for newscasts.  That could mean a weekly franchise, a transportation beat, or a digital project.
