The network is expanding it’s Bristol-based headquarters by 270 jobs total.

“We’ve been able to build a very unique thing here in Connecticut over the last 30 years, which is a production capacity on news and information and event coverage that is really in our view second to none,” Ed Durso, executive vice president for administration, told the Wall Street Journal.
The opening of an onsite daycare will also create job openings: a reported 70 new employees are expected to be needed for the facility.
