Job Openings at VPR

Vermont Public Radio currently has two job openings for a Reporter and Associate Director of Major Giving. Read on for details.


Reporter

VPR seeks a creative, enterprising and thoughtful journalist to join our growing and award-winning newsroom. We’re looking for a graceful storyteller and dogged pursuer of truth. You’ll tell rich stories focused on critical issues shaping the future of Vermont and efforts within communities to address them. You’ll focus on general assignment and daily reporting based in Colchester.

VPR just won a national Murrow award for overall excellence and is a leader in a rapidly evolving media landscape. Reporters have a passion for covering Vermont communities and are equally adept at breaking news and creating engaging enterprise stories. Reporters must be committed to diversity in reporting and sourcing.

A mastery of many skills is needed for today’s reporters: broadcast, podcast and digital storytelling, producing, editing, photography and social media know-how. You must love the medium of public radio, but you don’t need direct broadcast experience.  We’re looking for at least one year of journalism experience, more preferred.
