KPCW is Park City’s NPR affiliate, and our dynamic newsroom is the Wasatch Back's top source for what's happening up in the mountains.

Occasionally contribute to live reports as news dictates. Planning: Follow local and regional news along with relevant people and publications.

Participate in the creativity of story and program origination with news team, supervisors, and station staff. Keep excellent records. Help with fundraising campaigns and community-building events. Other:Manage tight deadlines and make solid decisions in rapidly changing situations. Collaborate constantly with the news team under News Director’s supervision. Reporter schedules vary (early mornings on some days, evenings on other days, midnight oil during elections, participate in on-call weekend reporter rotation.) .
Experience: College degree in journalism or related field required. Prior news experience and fluency in Spanish preferred. Strong candidates possessing some but not all preferred experience will receive consideration. Please send a cover letter, resume and examples of your work to firstname.lastname@example.org.
