The CPR News Fellow will be trained in every aspect of public radio journalism – developing story ideas, reporting, writing, producing and editing, for both radio, and the website and social media. The fellow will spend time in different areas of the newsroom – newscast/daily reporting, Colorado Matters, beat reporting and digital/social media.
The News Fellow will learn to define, pitch and produce a public radio story; record in a variety of settings; do basic photography, prepare thorough and balanced reports; identify guests for interview topics; provide thorough news research; meet news deadlines; prepare material for our digital and social media platforms; and do some on-air reporting. The News Fellow may also be assisted in connecting to other opportunities in public radio after the fellowship period, whether at CPR News or other stations in the system.
The Longmont Times-Call newspaper in Boulder County, Colo., is looking for a full-time, aggressive, enterprising and inquisitive multimedia reporter who will be able to juggle breaking news, multiple daily stories and briefs, data-based trend pieces and longer-term investigative projects. This reporter will cover all manner of breaking news out of the Longmont area, including police and crime, court proceedings and other general-assignment subjects.
We want someone who can report thoroughly and write quickly and clearly in high-pressure, deadline situations, as well as handle longer-term planning, development and execution of in-depth projects and series, including data reporting and analysis.
Furthermore, we are looking for someone with a full range of digital skills, with the ability to use social media and to shoot photos and video, and be willing and ready to learn and master the latest technologies to assist in newsgathering and storytelling.
