Are you a professional salesperson looking for a new challenge in 2018? Perhaps you’re in another career and always wondered whether sales might be a fit for you?


Over the past 6 months, Nexstar Media of Waco has grown significantly. We’ve almost doubled our staff and added what some believe to be the best local newscast in Central Texas. To keep up with this growth we need salespeople.


Instead of hiring salespeople in the traditional fashion, we’re taking a different approach by hosting a two-week sales academy. The academy is free of charge and will take place evenings from six-thirty to eight-thirty, three nights a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. The class will run for two weeks and will begin on February 5th. 


In the class you will be exposed to the sales training and systems we use here at Nexstar Media. You’ll also learn about our unique television and digital products and how we use them to help our advertisers grow their business and find new customers. 


Those who complete the academy will immediately be considered for employment with Nexstar Media of Waco. Graduation from the academy does not guarantee employment, but it is the first step to a sales career at Nexstar Media.

A History of Growth

In 20 years, Nexstar has grown from a single station to the nation’s largest television company. This growth is fueled by an organization-wide commitment to delivering exceptional service to our communities and outstanding results for our advertisers. With Nexstar’s acquisition of Media General, two exceptional media organizations have joined to form the country’s leading local television and digital media company.

A Commitment to Local

From the very beginning, Nexstar has cultivated an organization-wide commitment to providing superior, unique local content that is relevant to each of the communities it serves, while offering local businesses, advertisers and brands the ability to engage and connect with local communities. As the nation’s largest local media group, Nexstar now delivers its unparalleled local programming and service to approximately 39% percent of U.S. television households and offers more local audiences, clients and advertisers 24/7 access to compelling content and results-oriented marketing opportunities across all screens and devices.

A Dedication to Digital

In addition to the tremendous growth of Nexstar’s local television operations, the company has built a leading portfolio of digital products and services to deliver the power and reach of digital content publishing, marketing and advertising to clients and advertisers. Along with its digital publishing / video advertising platforms and digital agency services, Nexstar digital has expanded to add complementary capabilities including native advertising, social media, ad ops, design, development and a host of other valuable products and services.
