The CW is both a top broadcast TV network in the US and a fast-growing, ad-supported streaming service. With a network that reaches 100% of US television households and a streaming footprint on all major platforms, The CW reaches audiences at scale on both linear and digital television. The CW streaming service is available for free to consumers and is home to the latest episodes and seasons of The CW's primetime programming, live streaming of CW Sports content, and a library of entertaining film and television content for on-demand viewing. The CW is 75%-owned by Nexstar Media Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: NXST), a leading diversified media company and the largest CW affiliate group.

The Job:

The CW's Sports vertical has surged in growth since its inception just over a year ago, emerging as a pivotal focus within The CW's portfolio. This opportunity marks an exciting moment to join us at the inception and contribute to its continued expansion. In 2024, our lineup will boast an impressive array of sports content, including NASCAR Xfinity, WWE NXT, College Football and Basketball, LIV Golf, and Inside The NFL, both on our traditional broadcast platform and selectively on digital channels.
