The Charlotte Observer
The growth and development reporter covers a fast-moving, high-profile beat for the Observer. The beat demands competitive, breaking news coverage as well as exclusive, high-end enterprise that helps our audience understand and make sense of the changes around them in our rapidly growing city. The beat needs to connect multiple communities, from young professionals looking for a condo uptown to long-time residents concerned about the latest trends in their neighborhood to workers wondering what their office life will look like post-pandemic. This core beat involves breaking news, working sources, mining public databases, uncovering trends and talking to real people.
College degree and prior internships in a daily newsroom required. At least two years of beat reporting experience in a daily newsroom preferred. See link for more details.
