JOURNALISTS/NEWSROOMS WILLING TO LISTEN TO COMMUNITY NEEDS (fellowship) by Bear Guerra

Via American Press Institute:

“The American Press Institute has opened applications for a new year-long program to support news organizations that want to build more of their journalism based on community listening.

We’re looking for individuals who want their journalism to be better informed and inspired by their communities’ needs but who need guidance on strategies to make that happen. The goal is to empower more journalists and newsrooms to build the muscle for community listening by completing one long-term project, seeding the opportunity to spread that approach into more aspects of their newsrooms.

Interested journalists can apply by May 24 for a combination of in-person training, an expert visit to their newsroom, and remote support in completing a project designed to build this engagement skillset into one’s news organization. API will select roughly 10 journalists (reporters, editors, producers, etc.) representing different newsrooms to receive this support starting in summer 2019 and running through summer 2020.”

DEADLINE: May 24.

ENGAGEMENT JOURNALISTS (job) by Bear Guerra

Via Texas Tribune:

“We’re looking for someone who can be an expert listener, in the newsroom and with our readers. You will be passionate about gathering feedback — both quantitative and qualitative — and using it to improve the relevance and accessibility of our news products. You are a newsletter and audience engagement nerd, who knows the difference between an effective social headline and an email subject line. You are an avid consumer of state and national politics/policy news and will use your talents to make our journalism more accessible to a wider audience. You get satisfaction from learning who our readers are by name, and connecting them with our journalists and each other. You have a track record for driving engagement, whether it’s getting people to show up for an event, to subscribe to a newsletter or to weigh in on a conversation. And you know how to measure the effectiveness of your efforts.”

DEADLINE: May 31.
