Louisville Public Media

Business and Development Reporter
We’re hiring a business and development reporter to join our thriving local newsroom at 89.3 WFPL News, our city’s NPR affiliate. Our city is at a turning point, and its ability to create and sustain economic wellbeing — business and corporate growth, consumer behavior, labor and workforce health, housing and real estate development — will determine Louisville’s future. The mission of the business and development reporter is to explore the issues, people and places shaping the economy, change and labor in Louisville and the Metro area. Our audience includes decision-makers in the public and private sectors whose choices affect thousands of Louisvillians who depend on us to make informed choices about their lives. The stories this reporter tells will reach everyone from CEOs and entrepreneurs to those searching the web for links to utility assistance — and finding them at WFPL.org. They will develop and stay current with key sources, information feeds and emerging issues to ensure that WFPL’s coverage of business and economic issues is timely, relevant and context-rich. The reporter should seek out sources involved in all aspects of their beat that live in all parts of our community. The reporter works as a part of the WFPL City Team under the direction of the City Editor. They will need to have or quickly develop deep knowledge of the varied stakeholders, institutions, officials and current and emerging issues around the economy and labor in the city and state.
