General Assignment Reporter - Temporary

WYPR is seeking a temporary full-time general assignment reporter to cover news and culture in Baltimore through December 2023. The ideal candidate would have experience and a passion for keeping honest those who make the laws in our state and a desire to cover the 2023 Maryland legislative session. We are looking for a journalist with an intense curiosity who can paint a portrait with their reporting and writing that is the hallmark of public radio. You will have the support to grow and immerse yourself in this beat. You will develop a wide variety of sources to include community leaders, religious leaders, politicians, youth mentors, artists, and other change makers. You will bring to life stories of people affected by gentrification, redlining, neighborhood under-investment and crime. But you will also cover the narratives of those who are helping their neighbors navigate the bureaucracy of city hall to raise their voices. Baltimore is a city with a declining population, but one that is also seeing an infusion of newcomers, younger residents from the Washington, D.C. metro region and the surrounding suburbs. The general assignment reporter will navigate Baltimore’s unique neighborhoods like a hidden treasure map to unearth unique stories that impact and inform. The beat will afford the reporter the ability to make great radio stories, shape coverage and collaborate across platforms. If you have deep knowledge about a niche subject, we would like to explore that as well. Above all the candidate understands the deeply entrenched ethical standards of public radio journalism that the devoted public radio audience expects.
