Job Description:

Tired of only scratching the surface of stories? Looking for a position that challenges you to expand your skills as a multi-platform journalist? Join a new effort to bring policy to Pennsylvanians: PA Post. Based at WITF in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, PA Post is a statewide news organization that aims to drive the conversation on state government issues through its own work as well as the contributions from and collaborations with media partners across the commonwealth. You will be charged with connecting policy to readers and listeners.  Tell stories of Pennsylvania’s communities and the people who live in them, from Scranton to Schuylkill, from Altoona to Allentown, from Mansfield to McConnellsburg, and in urban neighborhoods in Philly, Pittsburgh and beyond. Report on how Pennsylvanians make their living, their struggles and successes, and connect those lives to public policy – from local representation up to the governor’s office.  Connect Pennsylvanians to Pennsylvanians by reporting on shared challenges, and solutions. Raise the voices of people and communities who aren’t always heard, or heard enough, on the airwaves or online, and make sure public officials are listening. Your multimedia, deep-dive stories will be heard through a network of seven public media organizations in Pennsylvania and one in southern New York, distributed to partner media organizations and read on PA Post’s robust website. You will work with the Executive Editor to produce both spot news as well as deep dives and long-form stories. You’ll use your audio, video and photography skills daily.  You’ll produce thorough accountability reporting and engaging storytelling on-air and across digital platforms. The successful candidate must have a bachelor’s degree and at least three years as a reporter in a fast-paced environment. The individual should possess the ability to work independently, while producing excellent journalism and handling affiliate relations.  Minimum three years reporting experience required.  Competitive benefits and compensation.
