NEWS ORGANIZATIONS SEEKING INVESTIGATIVE SUPPORT (grant, July 15) by Bear Guerra

Via PBS Frontline:

“For FRONTLINE, the PBS investigative series, the Local Journalism Project has two goals. The first is to help strengthen local reporting by supporting the kind of deep investigations that have positive impacts on communities. The second is to find new, under-covered stories that FRONTLINE can bring to a national audience on our PBS broadcast and digital platform.

The Local Journalism Project is being funded by a $3 million grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and a $1 million grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. It will be housed at WGBH Boston.

As of June 1, FRONTLINE is accepting project proposals from local news organizations. During each of the next four years, the series will select four or five projects annually on the basis of the strength of the proposed investigation, the geographic diversity of the news organizations and need for outside support to complete reporting and tell the full story.”

DEADLINE: July 15.

INVESTIGATIVE MANAGING EDITORS (job) by Bear Guerra

Via Frontline:

“FRONTLINE is looking for a sharp, thoughtful Local Initiatives Editor to help oversee a new national-local reporting initiative. The Local Initiatives Editor, who should be based in Boston, will help to establish and solidify relationships with reporters in communities across the country to develop a powerful transmedia reporting project on a single topic or issue. The goal of the project is both to enhance local reporting capacity and break new ground on a topic of national significance.

The editor will guide the day-to-day work on the project, coordinating with the local reporters, and overseeing and editing their work for publication, in coordination with FRONTLINE’s senior editorial staff. While the bulk of the project will likely be in text, experience editing or engaging in interactive or transmedia work is a plus.

We are seeking a smart, self-motivated person who can ask big questions but still sweat the details. They should have a healthy sense of curiosity, sound editorial judgment, established reporting skills and a passion for investigative and accountability journalism.”

We’re doubling down on our investigative coverage of the federal government and its impact on people’s lives. And we’re adding a member to our award-winning engagement reporting team to do it.

What do we mean by covering the federal government? There’s an enormous amount of news coming from Washington. We’re not particularly interested in the fights or the tweets.

We’re looking for a journalist who will mobilize communities constituents, employees, voters, taxpayers and more — around civic issues they care about. We’ll turn the community’s input into stories holding officials to account.”
