General Assignment | Breaking News Reporter

Applications are only accepted through our Applicant Tracking System (ATS). Click to apply: General Assignment | Breaking News Reporter

Do you thrive on the rush of covering important news and breaking stories? Do you yearn to cover the story of the moment, the story that everyone’s talking about? Or maybe you want to create stories that will get people talking and reacting – or get them to think deeper about the world around them.

Connecticut Public, Connecticut’s statewide NPR and PBS service, is looking for a reporter who can tackle daily news stories – from breaking news to general assignment – for our radio and digital audiences. The reporter will be based in Hartford and focus on stories in Connecticut

One day, you may be covering breaking news at the scene of the story – or interviewing community advocates in a neighborhood. Another day, you may be attending a press conference with elected leaders or arranging phone or virtual interviews with experts. The ideal reporter will be able to identify the deeper issues that are underneath daily news developments and find ways to tackle those bigger, in-depth stories over time.

At Connecticut Public, we’re working to build something special. We’re expanding our newsroom to better cover communities across the state. We’re striving to be a newsroom that has high standards and high expectations and where people do the best work of their careers. We want to be a place where journalists can be their authentic selves and be creative and imaginative, producing journalism that’s relevant, impactful, meaningful and memorable.

If you don’t have all of the skills below, don’t worry; we’re committed to helping you build the skills to thrive in this role.
