Advertising Sales

Be empowered to achieve

Great sales people can achieve great things when they are empowered, supported and rewarded. At Hearst Television, we’ve understood that equation for a long time. That’s why we’ve cultivated an environment where talented sales people feel liberated – because they have the support they need to do what they do best: engage, energize and inspire our clients.

That support comes in many forms. Our portfolio of multi-platform products is outstanding, innovative and constantly evolving. We also provide exceptional training and personal development, including 24/7 access to Hearst on Demand, a digital portal that hosts a wealth of training information on a wide variety of sales topics and selling skills.

But we think it’s the freedom and autonomy here that really sets these roles apart. We encourage our sales teams to look beyond short-term wins and to focus on long-term gains, building strong relationships with clients for the future. It demands strong relationship management, as well as direct sales skills, because we give you the freedom to manage, develop and grow your clients.

No matter if you’ve just started your career or are already experienced, you can develop your skills and grow into a seasoned Account Executive, Digital Sales Manager, Local Sales Manager or General Sales Manager. With so many stations in our group, there are many opportunities to grow in your role and move between different stations and markets across the country. There are also opportunities to be recognized –  each year, the Hearst Eagle Award is bestowed on the top individual seller at each station, while the Hearst Tower Award goes to the sales team which achieves the most collectively. The structure is in place to build your skills, build a profitable client base and build your career.
