KCUR 89.3 seeks an exceptionally creative, ambitious Reporting Fellow to work in the station’s newsroom as part of Guns & America, a groundbreaking new collaborative reporting project focused on the role of guns in American life. The Reporting Fellow will participate as a member of the inaugural cohort of the two-year Audion Fellowship, a first-of-its-kind professional development opportunity for early- to mid-career journalists designed to grow and strengthen public media’s pool of talented, cross-platform journalists.
The Audion Fellow at KCUR will build a new beat reporting on the many ways we interact with guns, creating empathetic, surprising journalism about this divisive issue. As one of 10 Audion Fellows reporting for the Guns & America collaborative from partner stations across the U.S, the KCUR Fellow will be employed by KCUR and will work every day with the Guns & America lead editing team at WAMU in Washington, D.C. As a member of the KCUR newsroom, the Fellow will also work with KCUR’s editorial leadership team.
In addition to a full-time salary and benefits at KCUR, the highly competitive Audion Fellowship offers cutting-edge training on digital innovation, investigative reporting techniques and audio storytelling. Fellows will also come together for twice-yearly, week-long professional development seminars, to be held in various cities throughout the country. Because of the full commitment required to fulfill the responsibilities of this position, Fellows may not be employed elsewhere or engaged in full-time study outside of training offered under the terms of the Audion Fellowship and Partner Station hiring agreements.
