New jobs posted to TVNewsCheck’s MediaJobCenter include openings for assistant news directors, executive producers, news producers, reporters, promotion managers and engineers in Texas, South Carolina and Iowa.
Santa, in one continuous 30-second take, stops by the news anchor desk, a dairy farmer endorses a morning weather lady and a punchy political coverage spot are some of the new promos from Boston, Milwaukee, Tampa and other markets around the country.
This past week was a busy one on TVNewsCheck’s Media Job Center, as Cox, NBC, Gray and Insite Wireless posted ads for openings in sales, news, marketing and engineering in Chicago, San Diego, Columbia, Boston and New York, and one opening where you can live anywhere you want.
