Report for America is a national service program that places emerging journalists into local newsrooms to report on urgent under-covered issues and communities. It is an initiative of The GroundTruth Project, an award winning, independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit news organization dedicated to supporting the next generation of journalists.
Report for America is a dynamic, rapidly-growing answer to America’s crisis in local news reporting. This year Report for America will expand from roughly 225 corps members to 300 as part of an ambitious plan to ensure that every American county has regular access to excellent local news. Our reporters and photojournalists work at newspapers large and small, public radio stations, TV stations, digital publications, wire services and investigative nonprofits. They will be in more than 200 newsrooms across 49 states, plus Puerto Rico, Guam and Washington, D.C.
We are seeking a Corps Excellence Regional Manager with radio-journalism experience to oversee the running of the Report for America program on a regional level from the perspective of the emerging journalists and their assigned newsrooms. We are particularly interested in candidates with a public radio background to help support our public radio reporters and newsrooms. This position is full-time and can be performed remotely. The position reports to Vice President of Corps Excellence.
Interviews will be conducted via video conferencing.
