ABOUT KXII: Would you like to advance your career at an award-winning television station that leads the market in both news and programming? What we do at KXII matters, perhaps more than it ever has before. With an endless choice of sources, more people turn to KXII 12Media for local news, weather coverage and entertainment programming. We take pride in being the source most Texomans choose, whether watching on television, reading online, following through social media, or consuming our content in any combination of these ways. Our employees contribute to that success on a daily basis. A dedicated group of experienced veterans and young professionals work hard morning, noon and night to serve our community by giving our customers the best quality content possible. We are where our community turns when severe weather threatens and when huge stories break. Regardless of their position, our employees take pride in that every day. Texoma is a unique place to live and work. It’s not far from two major cities (Dallas/Ft. Worth to our south and Oklahoma City to our north), but still very much offers the charms of small town rural life. Families, grandparents, and a growing population of young professionals are making it their home. North Texas and Southeastern Oklahoma offers a warm climate, plenty to do outdoors, and hardworking folks. Generations of farmers and ranchers make their living here in the fertile Red River Valley. Texoma is home to two world class casinos and one of the largest freshwater lakes in the U.S., Lake Texoma, drawing millions of visitors annually for recreation, fishing, camping and boating. Our towns host summer music events, festivals both Spring and Fall, and there is always a 5K run or biking event for athletic enthusiasts of all ages. It’s a great place to live and work!
