About Gray Digital Media (Atlanta):

In 2024, we have more ways to do that than ever, starting with all the digital assets of Gray Digital Media Atlanta.

So that’s what the right candidate will have at their disposal. What do we need? The right candidate is a proven leader with a record of success in digital sales, with experience in broadcasts a plus as well. They are driven, have a record of accountability, work well with others, and have an astute eye for hiring.  We constantly strive for excellence. Through upgrading to the latest technology and seeking new ways to stay on top in our markets, we focus on training and development of the best and brightest employees in the business.

Come be a crucial part of a great organization at a moment of real change.  We’re excited about the future of Atlanta News First, Gray Digital Media Atlanta, and of Gray itself!
