I had previously been hired by a CBS affiliate/sporting news provider and 80% of the reason was my knowledge of PHP. Although I am no longer with that job, I found it to be extremely valuable for my resume.
While you won't find PHP on their main website (they use Vignette Story Server and Oracle), a large chunk of backend code and system management utilities, including a trouble ticket system, were written with PHP.
