KUNC seeks an exceptionally creative, ambitious Reporting Fellow to work in the KUNC newsroom as part of Guns & America, a groundbreaking new collaborative reporting project focused on the role of guns in American life. The Reporting Fellow will participate as a member of the inaugural cohort of the two-year Audion Fellowship, a first-of-its-kind professional development opportunity for early- to mid-career journalists designed to grow and strengthen public media’s pool of talented, cross-platform journalists.
The Audion Fellow at KUNC will build a new beat reporting on the many ways we in the Rocky Mountain region interact with guns, creating empathetic, surprising journalism about this divisive issue. As one of 10 Audion Fellows reporting for the Guns & America collaborative from partner stations across the U.S, the KUNC Fellow will be employed by KUNC and will work every day with the Guns & America lead editing team in Washington, D.C. A member of the KUNC newsroom, the Fellow will also work with KUNC newsroom leadership.
In addition to a full-time salary and benefits at KUNC, the highly competitive Audion Fellowship offers cutting-edge training on digital innovation, investigative reporting techniques and audio storytelling. Fellows will also come together for twice-yearly, week-long professional development seminars, to be held in various cities throughout the country. Because of the full commitment required to fulfill the responsibilities of this position, Fellows may not be employed elsewhere or engaged in full-time study outside of training offered under the terms of the Audion Fellowship and Partner Station hiring agreements.
HOW TO APPLY:
Applications are due June 6, and Fellows are expected to begin their 24-month terms on or about August 1, 2018. Please send a cover letter, resume, personal statement explaining why the fellowship interests you and why you should be selected, and three examples of your best recent work to [email protected] more information see the full job announcement below or go to www.wamu.org/guns.
