JOB OPENING: New Mexico Photojournalist

The top station in sunny El Paso is looking for a talented, driven photojournalist for its bureau just across the state line in New Mexico.

You must have a strong set of shooting and editing skills. At heart, you must be a storyteller.

Las Cruces – the state's 2nd largest city and home to New Mexico State University, a Division I university- has almost 100,000 residents in a county of 210,000.

The county you'll be covering is bigger than some TV markets. The City of the Crosses is roughly 40 miles north of El Paso. We often cover stories all over southern New Mexico: from space travel to border issues, from drought to wildfires - the breadth of coverage is comprehensive.

Your team will be made up of a reporter and our news operations manager who grew up in Las Cruces, has 25+ years of experience, knows EVERYBODY in town, and fights fiercely to have the best product he can on the air every single day. This bureau has an office, but you`ll be working out of the mobile newsroom and doing field live shots at least twice a day.

You will be expected to shoot, edit and learn how to send video back to the station. The pace is quick, the demands are many. The person we choose will live in Las Cruces where the stories happen.

Good news judgment is a must. You have to be able to accurately capture a story through your lens and follow news because you will be expected to ask intelligent questions of newsmakers. That`s why I strongly prefer someone with a couple of years of experience in a newsroom.

Live truck, FTP and Dejero experience are a big plus.

The job is contingent on successful completion of a background check and drug test.

Please submit a link to your work, resume and references to Jobs@kvia.com. Please write ``LC JOB`` on the subject line.

Include your salary requirement, show me you`ve done research on El Paso and Las Cruces and can find them on a map.

Good luck!
