Job Description

It's fun to work in a company where people believe in what they do!

WIVB-TV is stationed between historic downtown Buffalo and beautiful Niagara Falls. To those who are unfamiliar with Western New York, Buffalo may just be another ''rising'' city. But to all of us at WIVB-TV, we know it's much more than just chicken wings and beef on weck. It's the City of Good Neighbors, the Queen City, or simply - home.

Looking for stuff to do? Well, we've got tons. Check it out right here!

From the ever-growing Waterfront development, the changing seasons, wine country, and pro sports (with passionate fans like you've never seen before) and the flavorful food, it's pretty tough to beat the unique, local feel!

We're a big city without big city congestion. Be a part of a welcoming community, a great place to live life with plenty of room to grow.
Our brand is LOCAL and we live it every day with local news coverage by our enthusiastic news team.
