KOSU seeks a special projects reporter to work on innovative journalism that is meaningful and audience-centric. It's part investigation, part engagement and should surface relevant content that resonates with new and existing audiences.
This full-time position is essentially tasked with conducting educated experiments that push against the status quo using tools ranging from in-person conversations to digital and engagement tools such as Groundsource and social media.
It is not an entry-level position. The successful candidate should have at least two years of journalism experience and is now ready to pitch big ideas for special reporting and engagement projects. While many of the stories you may encounter will be personal, this is inherently a hard news position that should surface challenges and viewpoints not typically heard in news coverage.
The successful candidate will need to be collaborative and adept at connecting the dots and seeing patterns.
News reporting will often require travel. The person is expected to be on call for breaking news events. Occasional work after hours or on weekends will be required.
This position will be based in downtown Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Oklahoma City is a vibrant and growing area with music venues, breweries and the new Scissortail Park within walking distance of the studios. The staff is a fun, iterative group, and we are excited about building a new engagement driven media source for Oklahoma. Come join us!
