Do you have a passion for uplifting marginalized communities, accountability reporting, narrative storytelling and collaborative teamwork?

Come join us as a reporter for the Gulf States Newsroom! This is a chance to dig into a story-rich beat in a vital region, travel and do impactful work.

TITLE OF POSITION: Justice, Race and Equity Reporter, Gulf States Newsroom (Staff Officer I)

DEPARTMENT: News & Public Affairs

ANNUAL ENTRY SALARY: $45,000 – $50,000 

This is a full-time position that’s eligible for full benefits  including excellent medical, dental and vision, ten paid holidays and a 401(a) retirement plan.

Who We Are: The Gulf States Newsroom is an exciting partnership between public radio stations in Louisiana (WWNO), Alabama (WBHM), and Mississippi (MPB-Mississippi Public Broadcasting) and NPR. We’re working together as a regional newsroom to plan coverage, share resources and add reporting power in a story-rich region where too many local news outlets have disappeared. It’s part of NPR’s collaborative journalism network, an initiative designed to better connect NPR with local member stations to represent what’s happening around the United States.

Who We Are Looking For: We need a passionate reporter to travel across the region and cover stories about incarceration, policing, housing and education, through the lens of race and equity. And there are so many stories to tell. This region has some of the harshest sentencing laws and highest rates of incarceration in the country. Prisons in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama are each under investigation by the Department of Justice for various violations. This reporter will cover these issues and their ripple effects on communities and highlight the reform efforts underway to turn around these bleak statistics.

How It Works: The reporter will be an employee of MPB in Jackson and will report to the managing editor of the Gulf States Newsroom (based in Birmingham), with support from the local news director. This reporter will be part of a team of regional reporters who cover health care and wealth and poverty. Stories run on the radio and online across partner stations. They will have the opportunity to file for NPR often and occasionally pitch in on local coverage at their home station. This is a grant-funded position with funding through October 2023. The Gulf States Newsroom intends to raise funds to sustain the position beyond that period.

HOW TO APPLY:

Interested candidates should send an email to careers@mpbonline.org that includes:

  • A cover letter explaining your journalism experience and why you are interested in this beat and the Gulf States Newsroom
  • Your resume
  • Two links to reporting samples you are proud of along with a couple of sentences explaining the backstory.
  • Applicants may mail resumes or State of Mississippi application to Mississippi Public Broadcasting, Attn: Personnel, 3825 Ridgewood Road, Jackson, MS  39211
  • See Web Site for complete description (Gulf States Newsroom Reporter) or (www.mpbonline.org)

Responsibilities:

  • Pitch, plan, report and produce audio and digital feature stories to air/publish regionally and often nationally.
  • Develop a robust network of sources that reflect the diversity of the region.
  • Report local and regional news spots as assigned by the Gulf States Newsroom Managing Editor.
  • Collaborate with editors and show staff at local stations to shape on-air two-way discussions.
  • Ensure that all work meets NPR News and station standards for accuracy, fairness, honesty and impartiality.
  • Perform other duties as assigned.

Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent work experience.
  • At least two years of reporting and/or producing experience.
  • Proven ability to work collaboratively with others and go with the flow.
  • Ability to stay organized and meet deadlines for long and quick-turn assignments.
  • Willingness to travel to report stories across Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi.

Preferred Skills: 

  • Experience with public records requests and data reporting.
  • Familiarity with the Gulf States region.
  • Ability to speak a language besides English.

Closing Date: Open Until Filled
