About Us:
CBS Television Stations consists of 29 owned-and-operated stations, including 16 that are part of the CBS Television Network, eight affiliates of The CW Network, three independent stations and two MyNetworkTV affiliates. Among its stations are WCBS-TV and WLNY-TV (New York), KCBS-TV and KCAL-TV (Los Angeles), WBBM-TV (Chicago), KYW-TV and WPSG-TV (Philadelphia), KTVT-TV and KTXA-TV (Dallas-Ft. Worth), KPIX-TV and KBCW-TV (San Francisco), WBZ-TV and WSBK-TV (Boston), WUPA-TV (Atlanta), WWJ-TV and WKBD-TV (Detroit), KSTW-TV (Seattle), WTOG-TV (Tampa-St. Petersburg), WCCO-TV (Minneapolis), KCNC-TV (Denver), WFOR-TV and WBFS-TV (Miami), KOVR-TV and KMAX-TV (Sacramento), KDKA-TV and WPCW-TV (Pittsburgh), WJZ-TV (Baltimore), as well as WCCO-TV’s satellite stations KCCO-TV (Alexandria, Minn.) and KCCW-TV (Walker, Minn.).

As the CBS Owned-and-Operated duopoly in San Francisco, KPIX and KBCW has a unique opportunity for a multi-talented creative individual with a passion for production.

If we could coin a new term we’d call this role a preditographer, because this pivotal team player must be proficient at several skills – with an emphasis on lighting and videography as well as editing.

This Creative Services role is responsible for writing, producing, shooting and/or editing station image and program on-air promos, social/digital messages and off-air marketing materials as well as client commercials. 

You’ll join two legacy stations and an award-winning creative team working in a fast-paced Top 10 market, and we can guarantee you won’t be bored.
