MMJ -- Multimedia Journalist/Storyteller

STOP! -- This is not your normal MMJ position.

This position is at Hello SWFL, a new Company within E.W. Scripps that's looking to change what news covers and how news is delivered.

As a member of our highly collaborative team, you'll need to utilize your expertise with digital, video and TV to be successful. You'll be more than a reporter -- you'll be a member of the Fort Myers community, learning about what matters to the people who live and visit Southwest Florida.

We are looking for enthusiastic storytellers who are interested in:

Breaking News
