WTHR is growing its nationally recognized investigative team with the addition of an investigative producer. This person will work closely with our investigative team and the newsroom to develop topical and long term investigative stories. You’ll research, plan and execute stories with broad impact to the people of Central Indiana.
Computer assisted reporting skills are a must. You must also be able to develop sources, handle complex investigations and work with our talented anchors and reporters to produce high level investigations on multiple platforms. Writing and interviewing are part of the job. And you’ve got to be able to handle multiple projects at once. We’re looking for some with a rabid curiosity and a strong moral compass. Five year experience as an investigative journalist is strongly desired.
More than 200 full and part-time employees work at WTHR-TV, making this the largest staff of any television station in Indiana. Located at 1000 North Meridian Street, WTHR's broadcast facility was officially opened in May of 1982. It was one of the first buildings to become part of Mayor William H. Hudnut's revitalized North Meridian Street corridor. The station houses two large broadcast studios in which an extensive amount of local programming is produced, from almost six hours of live newscasts each day to special programs like "The Brain Game," "Operation Football” and 13 SportsJam." WTHR was awarded 12 first place awards at the Indiana Associated Press awards in 2012.
Indianapolis, Indiana is the 13th largest city in the United States. Sports, festivals, museums and a thriving downtown all make Indianapolis an attractive place to live. Central Indiana and the Indianapolis area offer excellent schools, affordable housing, shopping and restaurants. That Hoosier Hospitality shined brightly to all who came to Central Indiana for the 2012 Super Bowl. As the home to the Indianapolis Colts, Indiana Fever, Indiana Pacers, Indianapolis Indians, the Indianapolis 500 and the Brickyard 400, Indianapolis is a mecca for sports fans.
