We’re hiring a journalist to report and host WUSF’s Morning Edition
Join a news team committed to reflecting the complexity and diversity of a region that 5 million Floridians call home.
WUSF Public Media is hiring a journalist to join our newsroom, serving the greater Tampa Bay region as a reporter and co-host of our marquee morning news magazine.
You’ll be part of a two-person Morning Edition host team, where you and your partner alternate weeks hosting and reporting. It’s a great situation that allows you the time to focus on two critical roles in our newsroom.
As co-anchor of NPR’s Morning Edition on WUSF, you’ll be spending weekday mornings with the radio and streaming audience, updating them on what they need to know to start the day, and sharing important local, regional and state news.
Your reporting will reflect WUSF’s commitment to telling stories that reflect the diversity and complexity of a region that 5 million Floridians call home. You will spend time listening to the community you cover and engage with them – in person and on social media. You’ll report, write, and produces news stories and features on audio and online.
The WUSF news team thrives on providing quality journalism – from news you need to know to in-depth investigations that hold the powerful accountable. Collaboration with each other and with partner newsrooms dedicated to public service journalism is in our DNA.
