About WSAW:

WSAW is Wausau's first TV station, debuting in 1954. It is the CBS affiliate that serves northcentral Wisconsin. As the leading broadcaster in the market, WSAW offers new and experienced sales professionals a unique career opportunity. As part of a publicly traded company, employees receive access to training and support from nationally renowned experts while retaining the opportunity to work and live in a smaller, more intimate environment. The culture at WSAW promotes positive relationships, encourages employee growth, and remains strong because the company invests to ensure its leading-edge position in the marketplace.
One such investment happened in 2015 with the purchase of the local FOX affiliation, now known as WZAW. This acquisition secured WSAW/WZAW as a powerhouse in central Wisconsin. With CBS and FOX programming, the station is home of ''Packer Football'' and many premier sporting events throughout the year.

WSAW is located 90 minutes west of Green Bay, 180 miles east of Minneapolis and 180 miles northwest of Milwaukee. Wausau is the economic and cultural hub of northcentral Wisconsin offering top educational facilities and a high level of satisfaction to those looking for family-friendly, outdoor lifestyles.
