Good for an introduction to news but not for a career.
If you're fresh out of college, then take a job here. You will get the experience you need to transfer to another station at higher pay. That is really the only good thing about working for this company.
Roughly a dozen members of the news staff have left since the beginning of the year and gone on to higher-paying jobs, some of which are in smaller markets. The majority of those jobs have still yet to be filled, creating more work for the same very low pay for those who remain.
In the almost three years since I started here I, and to my knowledge anyone else, have not seen a single raise. This company pays LESS THAN HALF the national average across all of its newsroom jobs.
Be prepared to be taken advantage of, you will be asked to change your schedule at a moments notice, work mandatory overtime. Some of this just comes naturally from the job, but most of it is due to gross negligence on the part of upper management. You will also be asked to do things that are not in your contact/job description, don't.
This is a decent company to start your career in the news with, what you don't get in compensation you will get in valuable experience. If you're new, I would recommend working here, otherwise, stay away.
Great for gaining experience in the field, can move around to find what you like
Very low wages, inconsistant schedule, poor staffing, poor communication from management
