WGEM-TV, the dominant #1 NBC affiliate in Quincy, Illinois, has a rare opportunity for an experienced meteorologist.

The WGEM StormTrak Weather team is a dominant local weather brand. During severe weather coverage, our meteorologists are supported by a team of award-winning journalists who report live from the field.

WGEM News wins Murrows, EMMYs, and has been recognized time and again by numerous organizations for journalistic excellence, including for live wall-to-wall coverage of Breaking Weather. Our newsroom is a continuous local information source with an immediate deadline mentality to serve our customers on our TV, Radio, Web, Mobile and Social Networking platforms.
