Job Description
About KSWO:

ABC affiliate KSWO is the top-rated station in southwest Oklahoma and North Texas. Our dominant position in the market means we get to roll out some of the newest tech in the industry while keeping an emphasis on telling local stories that matter to real people – anything from covering the aftermath of a tornado to exploring the implications of Roe v. Wade on Native American reservations.

Lawton is located halfway between Oklahoma City and the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. The region is known for the rugged beauty of the Wichita Mountains and National Wildlife Refuge, hiker's paradises. Close proximity to major cities and their attractions, affordable living and great outdoor adventures make the Lawton-Wichita Falls market an exciting opportunity for career growth.
