St. Louis Public Radio is looking for a photo/video journalist to lead our staff in visual storytelling. We are a multi-platform newsroom, committed to covering news that matters on air, online and through social media. This new position is a great opportunity for someone to make a mark in an organization open to experimentation.
The visual journalist will work in both photography and video, creating stories independently and collaborating to add visual elements to the reporting of others. The journalism produced will be a combination of daily or short-term work and longer-term projects. Assisting staff in identifying opportunities for photo/video in their work will also be encouraged. The position requires the ability to shoot, edit and compile work for presentation on stlpublicradio.org and elsewhere on the web.
Additionally, the job will focus especially on helping our newsroom reach people who are not already part of our audience.
