Wisconsin Public Radio – Second Century News Fellowship

Wisconsin Public Radio announces launch of Second Century News fellowship.

Second Century News Fellowship                                                        Location: Milwaukee,  WI

The Second Century Fellowship is designed for a recent graduate or early career reporter and is meant to prepare journalists of color, and those from other groups underrepresented in the media industry, for successful news careers. The successful candidate will work as a reporter in Wisconsin Public Radio’s Milwaukee newsroom for 12 months starting in July, 2016.

Wisconsin Public Radio is the second-largest public radio network in the U.S., with a combined total of 34 stations. We are committed to achieving a diverse workforce and to maintaining an atmosphere of diversity and inclusion.  We want our staff and programming to reflect the rich culture and diversity of our state and actively encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds to apply.

The Second Century Fellow will receive close supervision and coaching as a reporter, in areas that include story selection, interviewing, sound editing, writing, and developing in-depth stories.  As the successful candidate will likely already have some level of experience as an intern or part-time reporter, this will be a higher-level of instruction and feedback, with a higher level of work product expected.
