Field Reporter/ Journalist for Sustainability Show
5 people are interested
FIELD REPORTERS WANTED
The one hour program is titled Sustainable Today and is produced monthly through the facilities of Open Signal (Portland Community Media Center.)
We need field reporters to go with camera crews to interview & produce one of two segments for each show. One focuses on a business that has benefitted and/or is actively involved in sustainable activities and practices. The other is a Community Spotlight that highlights grassroots, non-profit, local efforts to promote and advance sustainability. Most of the work is in the Portland metro area but we have and will travel statewide if necessary. We will take as many qualified volunteers as we can get.
The ideal person would be a journalism student or intern with a keen interest in sustainability and developed research, interview and reporting skill as well as on-camera presentation talent. You will be required to research, contact, set up and report on-camera the various field pieces.
This is a polished production so if you are keen on sustainability and the environment, and want to gather some experience for your resume or even your personal life, you will be working with a seasoned veteran news photographer and an experienced crew. Of course experienced persons are also encouraged to join out team.
The Center for a Sustainable Today wishes to present and represent diversity and equity in our productions. Persons of color or varied ethnicity are strongly encouraged to apply.
This program is currently an all-volunteer effort. None of the producers, field correspondents, hosts or production staff is paid. We are seeking funding for wider distribution and national exposure through a newly created non-profit organization called The Center for a Sustainable Today. So there is a possibility this could turn into a more permanent paid position down the road.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org Please include your resume a photo and a demonstration reel of past work if you have one. Looking forward to your responses.
We'll work with your schedule.
