The KALW News team is looking for an experienced radio reporter to cover the immigration beat for our daily news magazine Crosscurrents.

You will be the go-to person for our news department on the beat, and we will expect you to be ahead of stories in your coverage area. You will have two deliverables per month: one feature (at least six-minutes long and sonically-rich); and one QA (about five-minutes long, timely, and well-researched) with our host, Hana Baba.

This is an independent contract position that will pay $833 per month, beginning January 1, 2019. The contract runs through June 30, 2019. Candidates must reside in the San Francisco Bay Area. Ability to converse in Spanish or Cantonese is highly preferable.

You'll contribute to a highly decorated news department, part of a team of award-winning reporters, editors, and sound engineers who produce nationally recognized features and series, such as Persistent Poison: Lead's Toxic Legacy in the Bay Area, and podcasts, including The Intersection and The Stoop. Within the job requirements, and at your discretion, you'll have the opportunity to work independently, collaborate with other reporters, and/or design special projects. Our team is designed to help you make the best and most impactful work you can.

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 Sunday, December  2, 2018, 11:59 PT.
