Imbalances in an employee’s working life have become a major problem due to the many issues related to employee well-being, productivity levels and boredom at work. Work-Life balance has now become a vulnerable topic because it offers real benefits to the organization and its success, so the goal to be achieved in this study is to provide an explanation of the influence of charismatic leadership and Work-Life balance against organizational commitment through employee job satisfaction in the broadcasting industry. The study was conducted using a questionnaire distributed in November-December 2019 where respondents used as many as 190 employees in the broadcasting industry in Jawa Timur. The data was analyzed using the Structural Equation Model (SEM). The results of this study show that a good charismatic leadership will increase employee job satisfaction, a good Work-Life balance will increase employee job satisfaction, and good job satisfaction will increase commitment. Organizational employees, good charismatic leadership will increase employee organizational commitment and good Work-Life balance does not increase employee organizational commitment directly.
