  • Welcome to Emmis Eleven Careers Blog. Life at Emmis Communications began with an idea and a cocktail napkin. Our CEO, Jeff Smulyan, took a vision and created a culture centered around the ‘Eleven Commandments’ that he wrote one evening; brainstorming how this media company would operate and set itself apart. Now 30+ years later, The Emmis Eleven Commandments continue to hold true today.

    The clock runs to twelve and in media we run in the ‘11th hour’ to get things done. We pride ourselves on making a difference, leaving an impression and serving our communities. The business of media is timeless. We’re constantly evolving, adapting to our listeners and reaching audiences across the globe.

    The goal for Emmis Eleven is to give a snapshot of what it’s like to work at Emmis, share industry trends, career advice, Emmis news, explore our brands and basically experience life at Emmis.
