THE DIVISION'S STORY More than a century after P.T. Barnum, Ad Sales has proven that the entertainment business has changed and money is made when honesty, business acumen and industry knowledge come together to solve clients' problems. As the biggest breadwinner for the company, we are continually searching for way to bring new dollars into the fold. Driven by strong creative and rooted in data and strategy, we provide advertisers with the valuable exposure they need in the specific markets they want to reach. So if you've got an aptitude for data and planning as well as a salesperson's drive, we'd like you under our big top. Extra points if you can juggle.

We are a sales force that represents a portfolio of innovative culture brands and dynamic advertising solutions. The strength of our portfolio is how we are able to speak to a wide range of audience interests, connect with original creative storytelling and through multiple always-on distribution touchpoints, deliver a premium, safe environment for advertisers.
