You are a storyteller first – and someone who loves to edit, report and write. You consider how a story should be presented online, whether that’s as a first-person essay, a traditional 800-word story, a photo essay – or something else entirely. You are comfortable anchoring election night coverage or a breaking news story, and you relish working on longer form stories, your own or another reporter’s. You like working with a team – we are a small, nimble and tight group that thinks out loud.
Wild ideas encouraged & welcome.

KUOW is the Puget Sound Region’s NPR-affiliated public radio service for local, regional, national and international news, information and cultural programming. We serve more than one million users monthly: on-air, online, live streaming and on demand. KUOW operates four broadcast frequencies in Seattle and Western Washington State and produces discrete content services on an additional two HD cha...nnels. The mission of KUOW is to create and serve an informed public—one challenged and invigorated by an understanding and appreciation of events, ideas and cultures.
The station is licensed to the University of Washington, which is assisted in its operation and management by Puget Sound Public Radio, a private nonprofit corporation established in 1999 and governed by a community board.
KUOW’s intent is to be the finest possible provider of news from both within and beyond our region. By doing so, we hope to enable our audience to be better citizens of the world and participants in our local community. We intend to push hard with ever better local/regional coverage: deeper reporting, broader reach and inclusiveness, and to establish emotional connections that resonate and connect citizens. By helping the citizens of the Puget Sound enrich their personal truths, tempered through the perspectives of their fellow citizens, KUOW works to bind us together through common understanding rather than rend us.
