St. Louis Public Radio is looking for an inquisitive and savvy reporter to cover health policy. Our coverage area includes major academic medical centers, rural mining towns, and high-poverty neighborhoods where a resident's life expectancy is 18 years shorter than that of their peers just a few miles away. You'll cover the health implications of decisions in Missouri's state legislature, which voted down Medicaid expansion and has approved some of the strictest abortion laws in the country. And you'll meet some of the most tenacious grassroots organizations working to improve health outcomes in the metro area.
St. Louis is a fascinating microcosm of the deepest issues facing the nation today, and it's a great place to be a health policy reporter.
We're looking for someone with deep knowledge of health, health care policy and research. A passion for reporting on pure science and environmental stories would be nice to have, too. The ideal candidate should have a record of journalistic excellence, a passion for storytelling and enthusiasm for digging in to complicated issues.
St. Louis Public Radio is looking for an obsessively passionate digital journalist to join our dynamic, entrepreneurial, risk-taking news team. We have been building our digital, social media, data analytics team for several years and are looking for someone who can set the vision for the station's digital assets and guide the newsroom in seeking new, innovative ways to tell informative, impactful stories.
The right candidate is someone who follows the trends in digital journalism and social media and who knows how to apply the right tools to our newsroom. The ideal candidate can see the big picture and can creatively fit in the small pieces that make the big picture work. What's more, as the person responsible for the newsroom's special projects, the ideal person can think creatively about storytelling and work across departments to bring a project from concept to glorious reality.
We're looking for someone who is extraordinarily well organized, accustomed to documenting a project's process and communicating the needs and process of the project. The ideal candidate is also comfortable evaluating the newsroom's analytics to help other editors use that knowledge to make decisions about our coverage and storytelling.
