KUOW Public Radio in Seattle, an NPR affiliate, is adding a digital reporter to its growing newsroom. This reporter would work with the online team to report on stories for the website, and would frequently discuss that reporting for broadcast with a radio host.
About you: You are a storyteller who is endlessly curious and enjoys the hustle. You look beyond pressers and board meetings for the bigger issues. You’re always dreaming about what chewy story is next. You are a strong, clean writer who enjoys working with an editor. You aim to lead the reporting pack, not flounder in the scrum, and you can turn around light, quirky fare, or longer, more complicated pieces. You can anchor breaking news. Expect to build your own source base — or expand on your current one — and to carve out areas of interest, possibly your own beat.
About KUOW Puget Sound Public Radio
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 channels. 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.
