Louisville Public Media

Health Reporter
If you’re a journalist who likes to explore unexpected angles, be creative with formats and cover all aspects of health, Louisville Public Media wants to hear from you. We’re hiring a reporter to join our thriving local newsroom at 89.3 WFPL News, our city’s NPR affiliate, to cover health policy, public health and the myriad ways people interact with the health care system. Health is a dominant, dynamic subject — from COVID-19 and personal care and public health, from government policy and the effects of revolutionary technologies to self-care and mental health. It’s an equity and justice issue. Louisville is home to one of the fastest-growing, most exciting health and science economies in the country, and this reporter brings it to life on-air and online. They are responsible for leading WFPL health coverage on all platforms, identifying key trends in beat reporting and distilling complex issues into understandable, conversational reports. They will also cover breaking news on their beat and lead coverage of the pandemic’s continuing impact on Kentucky as well as how the major health care companies in the region are working to change the way people get care.
