We are seeking a determined, persuasive, skillful media sales professional to join our sales team at WNIN Tri State Public Media, Inc.
WNIN is a highly regarded community institution. With a mission of enriching lives and strengthening the community through the power of media, WNIN TV and FM engage the local, Tri-State community through partnerships, media placements and events.
In this outside sales position you will sell television and radio sponsorship/underwriting messages, digital media and, occasionally, corporate event partnerships/sponsorships.

In this consultative sales role you will make cold-calls to decision makers at local businesses, meet with them to understand their marketing needs and develop proposals that offer marketing solutions to help them grow their businesses. In this position you will prospect, conduct needs assessments, create and present proposals, close the deal, write copy and service the account. You will manage an existing account list and also focus on developing new business while working as part of the stations’ development team to achieve personal and organization financial goals.
2+ years media sales experience in broadcast and digital is preferred. Passion for public media, in general, and specifically for what WNIN offers to the community. We are looking for a BIG fan! Knowledge about the programming is beneficial. Candidate must possess thoughtful and persuasive verbal and written communications skills, time and resource management skills, and the ability to work collaboratively with a team.
