The KALW News team is looking for three experienced radio reporters to cover beats for our daily news magazine Crosscurrents and to produce spots for our new daily newscasts.

Beats are as follows:

- Business/Labor/Cost of living reporter

- Health reporter

- Transportation reporter

You will be the go-to person for our news department on your beat, and we will expect you to be ahead of stories in your coverage area. You will be responsible for reporting one feature (at least six-minutes long and sonically-rich) per month and an average of one short (less than one-minute long and informational) spot per month, as needed.

This is an independent contract position that will pay $750 per month, beginning August 1, 2016. The contract runs through June 30, 2017. Candidates must reside in the San Francisco Bay Area.

 

We encourage a diverse pool of applicants from a variety of backgrounds. We do not discriminate on the basis of age, race, religion, gender or sexual orientation.

To apply, please send a cover letter specifying which beat you prefer, CV, clips or links, and references to KALWapplications@gmail.com. Application deadline is Tuesday, May 31, 2016, 11:59 PT.

Ben was hired as Interim Executive Director of KALW in November, 2021.
