Business and Power Reporter at Philadelphia Media Network

Posted By David Wilhite

Job Description: The Business & Power reporter would cover major developments at the big institutions where the public and private sectors merge, such as the port, the airport and the Navy Yard. But the primary focus is enterprise and analysis. Your reporting should reveal financial interests that would rather stay hidden, explore the economic impact of tax and regulation legislation, delve into the dealings of quasi-public corporations, and take readers into the back rooms where lobbyists secure policy changes that can yield big profits for connected companies. This is an assignment that will also require frequent reporting on policy and politics. Careful coordination and frequent cooperation with other desks is essential. Extensive enterprise or investigative experience is a requirement, and familiarity with greater Philadelphia and its power structure is preferred.

Job Qualifications: A minimum of three years of reporting experience for a news organization; A four-year college degree, or equivalent experience.; Graceful, concise and compelling writing style; Basic data literacy and analysis skills and ability to build simple charts, graphs, maps with in-house tools; Ability to gather, edit and post basic video and audio clips; Basic photo editing skills; Ability to interpret audience analytics to inform news gathering decisions.
