Job Opening: Account Executive

At WYMT we are family. We work hard and play to win, and have fun doing it. For more than 30 years of ratings dominance, we believe in giving back to our community. Rarely will you find a festival, parade, or charity event that does not include WYMT. We never take our success for granted and expect our employees to excel to the next level. Our culture is simple: we are a cohesive TEAM that invests in our people with continued learning and professional development. WYMT is the number one station in town for a reason: We are your Mountain Television.

WYMT.com is the region's strongest digital platform. WYMT is involved and dedicated to the local communities we serve, participating in numerous charities and causes. A second channel, Heroes & Icons (H&I), allows WYMT to offer even more local programming, including dozens of live high school and college football and basketball games each year. The WYMT Food City Mountain Basketball Classic has generated nearly four million dollars for local students and schools.

You will certainly find a "mountain family" atmosphere at WYMT.
