Investigative Post recruiting to hire a reporter

Investigative Post is looking for a hard-nosed reporter to join its award-winning team.

Based in Buffalo, Investigative Post has earned a reputation as one of the leading local nonprofit investigative reporting centers in the country.

We do newspaper-quality investigative reporting and produce stories for print, online, television and radio. Our reporters are adept producing pieces for all platforms. Our partners include the NBC and NPR outlets in Buffalo and our audience reach of up to 265,000 readers, viewers and listeners per story is the largest of any news outlet in upstate New York.

Our work has been cited for excellence by the likes of Investigative Reporters & Editors, the Edward R. Murrow Award, the Society of Environmental Journalists and the National Association of Black Journalists. Spree magazine honored our staff last year as the best print journalists in Western New York, citing our “intensively researched stories on vital topics.”

Candidates do not need to have TV experience, but must be ready to learn how to do broadcast work. We’ll help you develop those skills.

More importantly, we are looking for smart, aggressive reporters with a track record of producing strong beat or investigative coverage. Computer-assisted reporting skills are an asset; strong writing skills a must.

We’d prefer someone with at least five years of newspaper experience, but are willing to consider less-experienced candidates with exceptional talent and a passion for investigative work.

Competitive salary, employer paid health insurance, matching 401K.

Investigative Post is an equal opportunity employer.

To apply, send a resume, cover letter and links to three clips to Editor Jim Heaney at jheaney@investigativepost.org. Include “Reporter job applicant” in the subject line.
