NPR’s Newsdesk reporting team is at the core of our newsroom’s daily coverage, with a multi-platform team of general assignment reporters who can handle any topic, from budgets to baseball. We’re seeking a journalist who can write quickly, conversationally and with precision to boost our overnight news coverage across all our publishing and broadcast platforms. Specifically, this position will be an overnight role to help tell stories that develop in the late evening and watch for breaking stories overnight. When a story breaks overnight, this reporter will report and write for NPR.org, file spots for Newscast and occasionally take a seat in Morning Edition and the Up First podcast. We’re looking for a reporter who can bring a distinctive voice and sense of curiosity to our journalism, melding original reporting with the work of other NPR journalists as well as the best material from outside news sources and social media. This position will be based in Washington, D.C.
