News Reporter

Nelson, BC

Live, work and play in the heart of the Kootenays, British Columbia’s mountain playground!

Vista Radio is looking for a News Reporter in our Nelson, BC newsroom.  If you have always wanted to live in an area where skiing, hiking, biking, and fishing are all in your back yard, with some of the best powder on some of the most picturesque mountains in British Columbia, and breathe the mountain air every day, this is your next big break!

You’re detail-oriented, with a passion for getting it first – and getting it right.

You’re comfortable in the council chamber, the courtroom, or the locker room (well, as comfortable as the locker room gets).

You’re a team player, a self-starter, and are willing and able to lead by example.

You understand social media, its importance, and its evolving role in the news cycle.

You’re comfortable with a variety of platforms and can handle producing content in audio, video, and written forms.
