St. Louis Public Radio is looking for an education reporter to join our award winning newsroom. We are an innovative, risk-taking newsroom, so the ideal candidate should be comfortable reporting, writing and producing news stories for the radio and web. The St. Louis area has a complicated, storied and convoluted education system. In other words, it's a great region for education reporters!
It's an especially great place for education reporters who can explain arcane policy problems in engaging ways, who love to connect the issues to the people impacted the most, and who can distinguish between public policy lip service and authentic attempts to change things.
This is an amazing opportunity for a creative, entrepreneurial, energetic reporter who is eager to tackle the region's complicated education news. The ideal candidate should also have a record of journalistic excellence, a passion for storytelling and enthusiasm for trying new forms of telling stories -- be it online, in social media, on the radio or even in-person.
