Description

Wisconsin Watch is pleased to announce that Report for America has chosen us to host two RFA corps members in 2022.

Position 1) Wisconsin Watch will receive support for a corps member to join the Mississippi River Basin Ag & Water Desk, a project directed by the University of Missouri’s School of Journalism. The reporting network aims to tell water and agriculture stories across the Mississippi River Basin, a region that covers 42% of the continental United States. Wisconsin Watch’s corps member will be one of 10 reporters on the project. That corps member will start June 1, 2022 for a two-year stint.

Position 2) RFA also has chosen Wisconsin Watch to host a statehouse reporter to cover the governor’s office, Legislature, state agencies and Wisconsin Supreme Court. That reporter also will go through the RFA application project, and the position will likely start in March 2022.

Information for Report for America journalists is available here, and applications can be submitted here. The deadline to apply is February 1, 2022.

Potential RFA members who have questions about either position can contact Wisconsin Watch Managing Editor Dee J. Hall at dhall@wisconsinwatch.org.

These reporters will be the second and third Report for America corps members to join Wisconsin Watch. RFA corps member Phoebe Petrovic is completing her third year with Wisconsin Watch and will become a permanent staff member when her term ends in June.
