The Chicago Tribune is recruiting for an aggressive reporter to cover public transportation.
Chicago is the nation’s third-largest city and has the public transit network to prove it. Our readers get around on roads, trains, buses and bicycles for both work and play, and we are their top source for information. It’s a big beat, one of the most visible in the newsroom, and a great opportunity for the right person.
Chicago Tribune, part of Tribune Publishing, is committed to hiring people with diverse backgrounds, voices and visions. Be yourself. Bring yourself. Because that’s the only way we will deliver on our mission to provide meaningful journalism to the diverse communities we serve. We hold ourselves accountable for fostering inclusion and opportunity across race, gender, age, creed, identity and experience. Join us.
The right candidate is a self-starter who breaks news regularly, finds compelling enterprise stories and holds decision-makers accountable through watchdog reporting. The candidate understands the power of social media, with demonstrated skills to develop and expand their audience.
We’re looking for a nimble reporter who has a bachelor’s degree and at least 3 years of relevant professional experience who is fast, digitally focused and able to juggle multiple assignments.
We are looking to fill this position quickly. Please include your resume and 5 clips.
