The Buffalo News

Reporter: Business of Health Care
The Buffalo News seeks a reporter to cover how the health care industry is reshaping Western New York. Buffalo is a city experiencing an economic revival. At the center of the story is a burgeoning medical sector with big, competitive employers, startups seeking to capitalize on medical innovation and a growing medical campus. How the pandemic remakes the region’s health care business will impact its future. This is a competitive, enterprise beat that requires versatility and good sourcing. The ideal candidates should be as comfortable writing stories about how health and life sciences is changing the city’s economy to chronicling the way neighborhoods are changing because of medical campus development. Candidates should have significant enterprise reporting experience using interviews, public records and data to identify stories and trends, as well as a proven ability to break news, turn around in-depth stories on tight deadlines and juggle the demands of reaching a digital audience. This reporter should have clips that show a knack for explaining why it all matters and providing the bigger context.
