Job Description

The Kansas City Star is looking to hire a breaking news reporter with strong watchdog skills to join its award-winning news staff. This beat will combine daily coverage of breaking news — crime, fires, accidents — with regular quick-turn and occasional long-term watchdog reporting on law enforcement and courts. 
 
The position demands urgency and accuracy around publishing breaking news online and covering the action on the ground with social media and video. Just as important, the reporter will follow that up with accountability-focused reporting that scrutinizes the actions of public officials and institutions.
 
Our team is committed to doing journalism that holds truth to power and gives voice to the voiceless. If that's the kind of work that motivates you, we'd love to discuss this opportunity.

Job Requirements

Qualifications:
  • Bachelor's degree in journalism or related field preferred
  • Prior professional work experience
