Are you a producer who wants to really produce a newscast vs just stack a show? Do you want to produce a newscast that will inform and entertain viewers? Do you want to grow into an EP and be a leader in your newsroom? KSTP is the station for you. Our well-sourced reporters don’t MMJ. They work with talented photographers. Our directors have technical directors and we have real people running our studio cameras so you don’t need a code to execute changes with your newscast. We have 4 live trucks, 1 mobile live unit and our own helicopter. You say that is unheard of in broadcasting today, we say that is KSTP in Minneapolis/St. Paul.
