Houston has no shortage of breaking news and big stories and that’s reflected in our newscasts and feature segments during NPR’s Morning Edition. We’re looking for an enterprising journalist who loves anchoring, loves live radio, and who will lead and innovate. We also want an anchor who knows the value of building up an audience through effective use of social media and engagement. We are looking for a good fit with NPR’s sound and sensibilities; delivery that is credible and serious but conversational. Likewise, we want a serious journalist with an established record of award-winning reporting.
You’ll anchor newscasts and introduce our feature segments, working on-air with our morning host and off-air with a senior producer. Through collaboration with our news team, you’ll produce topical, relevant, and intriguing content in a variety of forms (two-ways with newsmakers and reporters, your own radio feature stories and web buildouts). You’ll be a mentor and coach for our substitute anchors. The work will be challenging but rewarding. The Houston region provides ample opportunities to report some of the nation’s biggest stories, not only locally but for our statewide and national broadcast partners as well. You may also be included in special reporting projects. We look forward to hearing about your interest in joining us.
