Why Work for KAPP-KVEW TV?
Because we care about you and your life outside of work just as much as we value the work you do as a Meteorologist.

Your degree in meteorology, journalism, or related field, along with your sound editorial judgement, will be vital to your success as you prepare and deliver weathercasts utilizing all available weather data and graphics computers. NWA and/or AMS seal are preferred, but if you have on-air experience and a passion for forecasting, let’s talk.
What you’ll get in return:
You’ll get a supportive work environment with co-workers and managers who value your work, your time and your perspective.
