Telemundo Philadelphia growing with 15 new positions

As we all know the local Telemundo affiliate in Philadelphia (WWSI) was purchased by the Telemundo Network making it an owned and operated station. This means more money will be put not the station and the creation of a local news program.

Just announced less than a month ago, the station is planning on hiring 15 people in preparation for the launch of local newscasts next year. The station is hiring 15 people in a variety of roles, including reporter, producer, anchor and photographer. WWSI will launch high definition Spanish language newscasts at 6 and 11 p.m. beginning in January. 

“We’re looking for talented Spanish-speaking journalists who are passionate about delivering the Hispanic community the local news and information that is important and relevant in their lives,” said Eric Lerner, President and General Manager of Telemundo Philadelphia and NBC10 Philadelphia. “This is a unique opportunity to play a role in the launch of a first-time newscast working for a company that is dedicated to serving our communities with quality journalism.”
Previously working at Telemundo Philadelphia I will say it was an amazing experience. TV is not easy. It's fast-paced and you have to be ready when things are changing over and over. It was fun. Also very demanding, I'm sure being part of the network will have,ore demands. Philadelphia's growing Latino population will surely benefit from Telemundo's growing station.
The new employees will be part of NBCUniversal, a leading global media and entertainment company, and will enjoy a competitive salary and comprehensive benefits package.  More information about the positions and the application process is available at
