If you’re a journalist excited about the high stakes of K-12 education, the bare-knuckle politics, the challenge of closing an achievement gap and the promise of more than 6 million students each year, then you may be the next education reporter at CalMatters. This is one of the most important issues in California and the single largest segment of the state budget. For a reporter, it’s an opportunity to reveal the politics and interests behind state education policy, to evaluate how major state programs are working and to hold educators and policymakers accountable. It’s a beat that will range from the California Capitol to district-level comparisons, classrooms and students. The pandemic has made this beat even more vital, as Californians look for information about how schools are reopening and how to remedy lost learning and other consequences of a year of remote instruction. Responsibilities include: Report and write longform and short stories and multimedia presentations about California education issues with close attention to state policies and legislation, the lobby community and advocates. Follow district and school examples that illustrate relevant responses to statewide issues. Think creatively about formats and tools for communicating issues to a broad, statewide audience. Appeal to a broad audience in a big, diverse state with keen awareness about social and cultural distinctions and story sources that reflect our population. Participate in radio shows, public events and live video. Work with our data, visual and social media journalists to maximize engagement. These would be a plus: There is a strong preference this reporter will be based in Sacramento Experience covering K-12 education An understanding of education policy, especially in California We are an expanding and collaborative newsroom, successfully forging a new model for sustainable, intelligent, nonprofit journalism.

If you are a journalist who always knows the latest unemployment rate and can explain what difference Wall Street makes to my life as a Californian, you might be the next economy reporter at CalMatters. This is not a business reporter job, but this reporter knows what motivates business. This job is about helping people understand the business and economic trends that shape public policy, that influence the cost of living, that reveal the jobs being created and those that are going away. CalMatters explains the major state issues in California and all of it — education, environment, healthcare, transportation, justice — is shaped by the state’s business and economic trends. California is also a high-cost, high wage state and one of its central debates is about maintaining those high wages and lowering those high costs. Recently, the economy beat has closely followed the emerging Future of Work themes in California, particularly the high stakes policy debate about gig jobs that landed on the 2020 ballot in Proposition 22. Another important focus has been the impact of the pandemic: how the state has sought to help businesses and how California businesses have been shaped in ways that may be long lasting, including an exploration of the California exodus claims. This is a rich beat with a variety of human, business and political stories. Responsibilities include: Report and write longform and short stories and multimedia presentations about California economic issues with close attention to state policies and legislation, the lobby community and advocates. Think creatively about formats and tools for communicating technology issues to a broad, statewide audience. Appeal to a broad audience in a big diverse state with keen awareness about social and cultural distinctions and story sources that reflect our population. Participate in radio shows, public events and live video. Work with our data, visual and social media journalists to create the best presentations of economy stories. These would be a plus: There is a preference this reporter will be based in Sacramento Experience at covering the economy or business issues An understanding of economic policy, especially in California We are an expanding and collaborative newsroom, successfully forging a new model for sustainable, intelligent, nonprofit journalism. We’re committed to diversity and especially encourage members of underrepresented communities to apply.

Department: Content/News Status: Full Time, Exempt End Date: Open Until Filled Summary Climate change is the crisis of all crises. It is forcing communities to adapt to unthinkable new normals, amplifying inequities across geography, class and race — and bringing about devastating and deadly consequences. The journalism produced by CapRadio’s next Environment & Climate Change Reporter will help Californians — and denizens of Earth! — better understand and navigate this emergency. It is essential public service journalism. The ideal candidate will have a passion for covering environment news. Some weeks, you may be out in communities looking at how extreme wildfires dramatically affect everything from topography to livelihoods. Other days, you may be reporting on energy and transportation at the state Capitol, speaking with lawmakers and exploring how politics and climate change collide. Our hiring committee will be focusing on candidates with journalism experience: at least three years spent at a press outlet, or commensurate time as an independent contributor or freelancer. It’s important that you have demonstrated an interest, or perhaps a deep knowledge, related to climate change and environmental justice issues. This reporter will work on a variety of content deliverables. Most of your time will be spent on enterprise work, such as feature stories and special projects — maybe even a podcast. But there will be regular, weekly commitments to file daily stories; if we had to estimate, the equivalent of six to eight thoroughly sourced daily stories a month. The ideal candidate will be comfortable reporting for a variety of platforms: shining as an audio journalist, quick with words and smarts on our talk programs and podcasts, and adept at producing content for digital. We also are looking for a reporter whose instincts are to ask: Who is not included in this story but should be? Am I overlooking equity issues? What audiences need this information and how can we best serve them? If you are a multilingual journalist or fluent in Spanish, that will help you in this role. We want to deliver for audiences who traditionally are underserved by public media. We also encourage BIPOC journalists to apply for this position; you will be supported in our newsroom. Editors and producers will be there with praise, constructive feedback, opportunities for self-care and even urging to take time-off to recharge. We may occasionally meditate. Keep an open mind! And we’ll give you the training needed and space to succeed — and fail — and will support you as you continue to develop in this vital role. Your work will reach millions of Californians, including via our statewide network of more than five dozen public-media frequencies and websites. Sometimes you’ll also appear on NPR or NPR.org. In conclusion: This is an exciting opportunity to cover the most important issue of our time, climate change, in a state and community at the vanguard of environmental innovation, mitigation and adaptation, and with trustworthy co-workers who value collaboration and empathy.
