The Charlotte Observer
The business team’s healthcare and transportation beat team is a critical one for The Charlotte Observer. It requires a daily presence as well as enterprise work to help our community make sense of two crucial areas of the city. This includes covering one of the world’s busiest airports, a new medical school and what will be one of the nation’s biggest hospital systems. Maintaining coverage of COVID-related issues is also important. Hearing concerns from a diverse group of real people, uncovering trends and poring through public databases all are important to successful coverage of the beat.
College degree required. At least two years of beat reporting experience in a daily newsroom preferred.
