We are hiring! The TEGNA Commercial Operations (TCO) team is looking for a talented and motivated person to join our team.

A broadcast Traffic department maximizes revenue for a television station through careful consideration of spot placement and program formatting. We describe our group as "Commercial Operations" because we do more than just place spots on a log; we work hand in hand with the sales, marketing/promotions, programming, news and engineering departments to create an on-air product that generates positive results for both our stations and clients. Our daily workflow has often been described as working a puzzle; we manipulate commercial inventory to maximize an advertiser's return on investment. Hourly Pay: $19.23 - $21.63 per hour.


A successful Inventory Specialist pays attention to detail, is customer-service oriented, shows initiative and is able to balance multiple projects and requests while meeting daily deadlines.  Specific job requirements include:

  • Using WideOrbit Traffic software, manage commercial inventory by accurately preempting or placing spots on the broadcast log
  • Meet daily log finalization deadlines and clear oversold inventory 13 weeks out
  • Understand and follow spot placement guidelines to ensure client specifications are met
  • Verify the broadcast log is maximized for revenue and meets product and advertiser separation requirements
  • Collaborate with TCO and station teammates to identify and communicate revenue opportunities to the sales team
  • Process sales orders and assist sales team with accurate order entry
  • Various other duties as assigned

If this sounds like a great fit, we are looking for applicants with the following skills and experience:

  • High school diploma (required)
  • Undergraduate degree in marketing, communications, or a related field (preferred)
  • Broadcasting, cable or radio traffic or sales support experience (preferred)
  • WideOrbit traffic system knowledge (preferred)
  • Proficient with computer software/applications, including Microsoft Office: Outlook, Word and Excel (required)
  • Attention to detail and strong organizational skills (required)
  • Desire to work in a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment (required)
  • If you have relevant work experience, we are willing to train the right candidate

We offer comprehensive health and wellness coverage that ensures our employees have the care and coverage they need to stay healthy, build current and future financial security and maintain work-life balance.
