WMBB is looking for someone to anchor and produce our 9:00pm – 10:00pm FOX newscast. This is the perfect opportunity for a weekend anchor who wants to move up to weeknights, or a solid reporter who wants their first opportunity on the anchor desk. You’ll be joining an aggressive news team that leads the market in breaking news events and breaking the big stories. While we like to work hard, we also like to have fun. Our newsroom is a great working environment. The entire station was gutted and remodeled after Hurricane Michael hit us in October 2018. So, you’ll be working in a state-of-the-art facility. And the Panama City market is a beautiful place to live. You’d be living in a place where people pay as much as $1,000 a night to vacation. You’ll be working in one of the fastest-growing and most desirable communities in the U.S.
