Be part of a community
At Hearst Television, supporting our communities is very important to us. We also extend that same high level of support to our employee community. We will reach out to individual stations in times of need. Like when employees from all over the country traveled to New Orleans to help our overwhelmed local station there cover hurricane Katrina – and then help our New Orleans employees start putting their own lives back together.
As a broadcaster, we feel that the work we do plays a vital role in connecting communities and bringing people together. So we take the time to really understand the communities we operate in, because we feel a sense of connection to those places - it’s this sense of commitment that led to WCVB winning the NAB Service to America Award in 2014 for their coverage of the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings. We also strongly believe in supporting employees who engage in charity work and volunteer initiatives.
