North Country Public Radio is seeking a creative, ambitious, and talented reporter to join our award-winning, nationally recognized news team.
We cover critical issues facing our communities, including criminal justice and prison reform, border and immigration, economic development, rural health care, agriculture, politics, and much more. We tell the stories of the people who live in our region in eye- and ear-catching ways, challenging our assumptions and nurturing our curiosity. The motto on our newsroom whiteboard is: “get out of the building and have more fun!”
We’re looking for a general assignment reporter – enterprising and self-motivated, able to work on their own, and with a team. You’ll also get a chance to establish a “mini-beat” to dig deeper. We encourage all of our reporters to file national stories with NPR and other public media outlets.
The reporter will produce news stories for broadcast and digital platforms that serve the mission of the news department to provide coverage of issues of regional importance. They will also collaborate with the rest of the news team on special projects and investigative journalism.
