If you believe in the importance of journalism to the life of our communities and our republic, you will have the opportunity to live that commitment out at WCAX. We are on our way to being the best TV station in America, and if that sounds like the team you'd like to play for, then we want you. But be warned: we like what we do. It's not just a job, it's a lifestyle. If you live this work - if you can't help but do it - you might find some friends here. We'll enable your addiction to television, to digital, to news.
WCAX is the original and leading station in the Burlington-Plattsburgh market. We paved the way for TV in this whole area of the country. We are a station of innovators. If you are the person who will help us inform, educate, entertain and delight an audience of more than 750,000 people, then you need to send your resume and reel to us right now.
Take this opportunity to build your career in a place people come from all over the world to enjoy. Ski at some of the best-known resorts in America in the winter and hike, boat and play outdoors in the summer. The Burlington, Vermont, area is one of the most beautiful places in North America. Maybe you'll find yourself at the top of the Green Mountains in Vermont or Adirondacks in New York. Then again, the foodie culture of downtown Burlington may whet your appetite for delicious traditional favorites or haute cuisine. Perhaps you'll be the one who finally captures a clear image of "Champ," the mythical prehistoric monster (like that other one in Loch Ness, Scotland) said to live in beautiful Lake Champlain.
