Weekend Sports Anchor

ROCKFORD (WREX) -- 13 WREX has the unique opportunity for someone who is looking to build a career in the competitive world of sports journalism.

13 WREX, the NBC affiliate in Rockford, Illinois, is looking for its next Weekend Sports Anchor/MMJ.

Our next weekend sports anchor will have a passion for sports that shines in every newscast and across all platforms.  13 WREX doesn’t just show highlights, we tell stories that connect with the athletes, coaches and families in our communities. 

The successful candidate will bring dynamic anchoring skills to the desk, but also report, edit, and shoot video in the field.  We want you to create shareable stories across all platforms, including our website, mobile platforms and social media.

13 WREX is also part of the Quincy Media and IHSA Television Network, which broadcasts the Illinois High School Association’s high school football and basketball championships to a statewide audience. The weekend sports anchor would be expected to play a role in those broadcasts as well!

If you thrive in a deadline-driven environment and you’re ready to bring your extensive sports knowledge to our team, we want to hear from you.

Please send or email your resume and cover letter to:
