Oklahoma Watch is seeking a reporter who can develop ground-breaking, watchdog reports on a variety of subjects, including criminal justice, state government, health care and human-service needs.
The position is to be based at our offices at the University of Oklahoma in Norman, although a location in Oklahoma City would be considered. The reporter should have at least five years of reporting experience and an ability to dig for and produce powerful exclusives, write with clarity about complex issues, and cultivate sources who provide the inside story.
He or she should be adept at tackling long-form stories and acquiring and analyzing data. Aggressively pursuing documents through open-records requests is a must. The reporter should possess an insatiable curiosity, smart news judgment and a strong work ethic. Taking photos and simple video, recording audio and live-tweeting will be part of the job.
The following should be sent to David Fritze, executive editor, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
