Senior Health Care Reporter

Job Description:

There's no better place to tell national health care stories than from Nashville, Tennessee — a vital hub of the nation's hospital industry in the middle of the country's least healthy region. The policy and the people intersect right here, with plenty of room for a seasoned journalist to break ground.

To prepare for hiring a senior health care reporter, WPLN has partnered with Kaiser Health News, which is collaborating with NPR member stations. In addition to driving local health coverage, this reporter's work will regularly be edited by a national Kaiser and NPR team. Both networks are eager to broadcast more stories from places like Nashville.

We need a reporter who knows how to make health care relevant to listeners who often find the policy and industry beyond their comprehension. More importantly, though, this journalist should have a track record of sniffing out the human stories that help us all understand more about ourselves and our world.

We’re very open to hiring a print journalist and teaching them the ropes of radio, but multimedia experience is a huge plus. The winning candidate will join an upbeat and collaborative midsize newsroom in a booming city, growing more vibrant and diverse by the day.




Comments:
The successful applicant needs reliable personal transportation. We offer a very competitive salary and generous benefits, including health insurance and 401k match. The position is open until filled.

Applications accepted online only. Please submit a resume, references, and examples of print and audio work to jobsearch@wpln.org.

Nashville Public Radio is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
