Job Responsibilities

The Metro reporter will cover the cream of the crop stories in our region, focusing on issues with greatest impact in our lives. Stories will be unexpected, engaging, teach something new or offer valuable "explainers" to help us get at our news mission to tell our audience not only WHAT is happening in our community, but WHY. The Metro reporter will follow political news in our region--not as the proverbial horse race, but as stories of how lives are affected by changing policies in our region, from the local and national level. The Metro reporter works alone and with the Investigations Desk for accountability reporting, and plays a key role in our election coverage. The Metro reporter will work at the direction of the Director of News & Editorial Strategy (DNES), under the supervision of the Senior News Editor, and work in coordination with the Senior Producer of News & Convergence, News Editors, and other members of the News Division. KPBS news beats are, but not exclusive to, arts & culture, border, education, environment, arts, health, culture, investigative, and science & technology. The Metro reporter will produce news stories that may cross beats at the assignment of the Senior News Editor, and that can be distributed on KPBS radio, TV, KPBS.org, KPBS social networking and KPBS mobile. The news stories will be produced in formats for radio newscasts, in-depth radio features, TV packages, multi-media projects and special reports as assigned. The Metro reporter may be assigned to anchor radio newscasts, and appear as a guest or host on KPBS TV and radio programs. The Metro reporter will produce local content and prepare final productions that can be distributed on all KPBS platforms. The Metro reporter is expected to participate in station on-air fundraising activities, and make appearances for KPBS community building events and other public relations activities.
