Current Open Positions

Reporter – Democracy Beat

Tired of only scratching the surface of stories? Looking for a position that challenges you to expand your skills as a multi-platform journalist? Join WITF, one of the country’s top-performing and most entrepreneurial public broadcasting organizations. Disinformation and misinformation on critical issues that affect peoples’ lives – such as climate change or the COVID-19 pandemic – can weaken communities and subvert a healthy democracy. Those issues often give rise to policy and/or legislative proposals, which require people to make informed decisions on what candidates to support and which individual proposals to get behind or to oppose. Disinformation and misinformation, spread by politicians of any party or advocates on any side of an issue, blunts the ability of people to make the fact-based decisions on which democracy, and our cities, towns and neighborhoods, thrive. You will be responsible for helping our listeners/readers better grasp how misinformation and disinformation is negatively impacting their quality of life, policies impacting their communities, and the function of government at all levels. Your stories will be heard through a network of public media organizations in Pennsylvania and one in southern New York. This data-driven, multimedia approach will aim to sustain connected, contextualized reporting to expose elected leaders and candidates for public office who traffic in spreading false information and conspiracy theories. The position will include an element of community engagement – including events and having our audience serve as your eyes and ears for tips. Experience the freedom to use your audio, video and photography skills daily. You will do so through accountability reporting and engaging storytelling on-air and across digital platforms. You will be joining a news organization that has one of the most stringent election accountability policies in the country.

We are seeking an experienced multiplatform journalist. The successful candidate must have a bachelor’s degree, at least five years as a journalist in a fast-paced environment, and is an engaging storyteller with strong reporting, investigative skills and writing abilities. The reporter should be comfortable working independently, producing high quality photographs to supplement their stories, have knowledge of audio editing software, and the ability to appear on television and participate in community engagement events. Misinformation and disinformation have wreaked havoc on public discourse, elections, public health and more. Here’s an opportunity to launch a unique beat and help Pennsylvanians separate fact from fiction. After our Democracy faced its gravest threat and the peaceful transition of power was disrupted for the first time in our nation’s history, WITF stands ready to speak truth to power with this new beat.

Founded in 1964, WITF is Central Pa.’s public media affiliate broadcasting PBS, NPR, and original programming on television and radio. WITF was founded to be an educational resource to our community, and we continue to do so by providing trusted journalism, thoughtful discussion, and educational experiences through our media and community outreach.
