Full time

KCUR 89.3 seeks an exceptionally creative, ambitious Reporting Fellow to work in the station’s newsroom as part of Guns & America, a groundbreaking new collaborative reporting project focused on the role of guns in American life. The Reporting Fellow will participate as a member of the inaugural cohort of the two-year Audion Fellowship, a first-of-its-kind professional development opportunity for early- to mid-career journalists designed to grow and strengthen public media’s pool of talented, cross-platform journalists.

The Audion Fellow at KCUR will build a new beat reporting on the many ways we interact with guns, creating empathetic, surprising journalism about this divisive issue. As one of 10 Audion Fellows reporting for the Guns & America collaborative from partner stations across the U.S, the KCUR Fellow will be employed by KCUR and will work every day with the Guns & America lead editing team at WAMU in Washington, D.C. As a member of the KCUR newsroom, the Fellow will also work with KCUR’s editorial leadership team.

KCUR, the NPR affiliate in Kansas City, is an editorially independent community service of the University of Missouri-Kansas City.  See www.kcur.org/jobs for the complete position description and information about KCUR and Kansas City. 

Applications are due June 6.  Apply online: www.umkc.edu/jobs
