Channel One Seeks New Anchors – Good Luck

May 8, 2003

Want to travel the world and bring what you see back to school classrooms? We’ve got the lowdown on the new anchor showdown.

Channel One News is looking to hire new anchors immediately to:
Work in our Los Angeles studio
Interview story characters and experts
Report stories from all over the U.S. and foreign countries
Stay on top of current news events
Pitch story ideas
Respond to correspondence from the audience

A high school diploma is required, as well as enrollment in a college or university. Broadcast experience is NOT required. We’re looking for someone who our teen audience will find interesting. You must have an outgoing personality, be knowledgeable about news and a range of topics, and want to express your opinion about story coverage in editorial meetings.

As a Reporter, you will have the opportunity to travel the world to cover stories ranging from topics of international interest, such as the conflicts in the Middle East, to major political conventions. You’ll also be involved in covering issues related directly to the teen experience, such as ketamine use and surviving divorce. You will do more than “report” the facts. You will interview experts and teens in America and abroad, and relate stories to the audience.

Our news broadcast is unique– we use maps and graphics, present historical information and represent more than one perspective on an issue.

Channel One News launches amazing TV careers: Lisa Ling ( The View, National Geographic Explorer ), Serena Altschul ( CNN, MTV News ), Anderson Cooper ( CNN), Maria Menounos ( Entertainment Tonight ).

How to Apply:
Send a cover letter, resume and a brief audition tape (vhs, beta, dv or cd format) to:

Channel One News
New Talent
5300 Melrose Ave., Ste. 400E
Los Angeles, CA 90038

Audition tapes may be “home-video” quality. Just tell us what news stories and topics interest you, and why you would be a great Channel One reporter. Be sure to speak naturally.

Because of the large volume of applicants, we can’t take calls.
