  • Identifying local, provincial, federal and international stories
  • Possible digital writing
  • Weekend and early morning/evening shifts as assigned and required

  • Experience copy editing and proofreading written content

  • Experience with television production is an asset
  • Familiarity with newsroom management systems (e.g.  iNews) is an asset
