NPR - Planet Money

Title
Co-Host/Reporter, Planet Money
Details
This job is a chance to help millions of listeners make sense of one of the most confusing moments in our nation’s -- and the world’s -- history. You’ll have to juggle themes of fairness, well-being, inequality, power, race, nationalism along with efficiency, productivity, innovation and all the other usual economic vocabulary words. Does that energize you? 

We’re looking for a new co-host/reporter to join an extremely collaborative and tight-knit team with broad creative freedom to tell stories however we can. Sometimes it’s a character narrative, other times it’s field reporting or an expert interview, or doing things for ourselves, like buying 1,000 barrels of oil or a load of Christmas trees for hapless re-sale on a sidewalk. Humor, antics, empathy, pathos, metaphor, or song or anything else: we deploy whatever tools we need to best explain, engage and entertain. Again, does all of this energize you? 

We are open to candidates from non-traditional backgrounds within journalism, business, finance, education or anywhere else but you must be a creative storyteller, team player, critical thinker, kind colleague, curious about economics and able to hit tight deadlines. Please read on for details.
