City Beat reporter

Triad City Beat
Greensboro/Winston-Salem, North Carolina

The City Beat reporter will attend every Greensboro and Winston-Salem city council meeting, filing 3-5 stories a week, long and short, about politics, policy and their effects on the people who live here.

I's a high-profile gig, designed to last a couple years. Salary is through a grant: $25,000/year to start, which is comparable with other TCB newsroom salaries. We know it’s not a lot of money, but the workload is manageable, and the experience is invaluable — most of the journalists who have worked with TCB reporters and editors have gone on to do big things in this industry.

The ideal candidate for the City Beat is an early-career journalist, though seasoned reporters and rookies alike will be considered for the position. College newspaper experience counts, as does familiarity with city government.

Preference will be given to any candidate who brings more diversity to our newsroom, which is a crucial quality for modern media organizations.
