HIgher Ed and Health Reporter

The Daily Progress (Charlottesville, Virginia)

The Daily Progress in Charlottesville, Virginia, is looking for an enterprising reporter to cover higher education, including the University of Virginia and Piedmont Virginia Community College, and health and medical issues, including as they relate to the public Health System at UVa, a private community hospital and numerous local health agencies. The job requires guts, energy and organization, with a strong sense of the impact and responsibility of publicly funded universities. As higher education reporter, you will cover everything from Board of Visitors meetings to student protests and access issues. The beat requires deft sourcing and a knack for finding stories that do not make themselves obvious.


This is an excellent opportunity for a reporter who is interested in covering stories with statewide and national significance​ and going head to head with The Washington Post, the Richmond Times-Dispatch and other large outlets that also cover this beat.

In addition to being the university and health watchdog, you will be responsible for approximately one evening shift per week covering general assignment and breaking news, as well as at least one weekend shift per month. You will be responsible for daily and weekender-length news stories primarily on the higher education and health beats, but as a member of a compact news team, you will be expected to jump on occasional stories off the regular beat.


Charlottesville is a growing city of nearly 50,000 people that is located within Albemarle County, which is also a growing locality of nearly 108,000. Conversations about race, equity and equality dominate the local discourse, closely followed by questions of growth, development and density. These issues are integral to the higher education/health beat.


Successful applicants should have at least two years of daily newspaper reporting experience, and be experts in AP style. Expertise in social media, web posting and simple video production are preferred, but can be taught on the job. Submit a resume, cover letter, references and five strong clips through this job posting.

EOE.
