WISC-TV (Madison)

Television Maintenance Engineer: Is troubleshooting digital broadcast systems in your DNA?  Do you believe that infrastructure documentation is the life blood of an engineering department?  Does SDI mean more to you than IT, but you understand the importance of both in the modern broadcast plant environment?  If you are still reading, we should talk. WISC-TV is searching for a broadcast engineer who can read, understand, create, and maintain custom station documentation that is critical to the entire engineering department.  We use Autocad to create and keep our documentation up to date.  If you know Autocad, we need to talk.
