Description

News Fellow
The heart of our work as journalists is to explore stories that inspire impact and help us understand each other better.  We’re looking for our first newsroom fellow– someone who has a passion for telling distinctive stories and amplifying community voices.

As our fellow, you should bring a life experience or background that contributes to a broader understanding of underrepresented communities and informs VPR’s news coverage. You will gain experience in reporting, editing, interviewing, storytelling and digital production. Our fellowship will also help you build a network within the public media industry.

You must love the medium of audio journalism, but you don’t need direct broadcast or reporting experience.  You just need a demonstrated interest in journalism or communications and a commitment to covering critical issues in the state with authenticity, fairness and transparency.

As part of the application process, candidates should answer the following question in 500 words or less. “What is one issue you believe is not being fully covered or understood by the media and how would you approach covering it?”. Applicants are also required to fill out the VPR Job Application form and send it with a cover letter and resume by email to careers@vpr.net
