St. Louis is a city with one of the highest homicide rates in the country. It's next to a county (also called St. Louis) that has 88 cities, many of which have depended on fines and parking tickets for their revenues. It's in a state in which the former governor stepped down after months of allegations of misusing campaign funds and possible sexual abuse.
In other words, the St. Louis region is a great place to be an investigative reporter and St. Louis Public Radio, an NPR member station, is looking to hire one.
We're looking for an investigative journalist who can wear two hats: reporter and coordinator.
The investigative reporter/coordinator will spend half their time doing their own investigative journalism. The other half of the time, the reporter/coordinator will assist other reporters on their short- and long-term investigations; serve as adviser and facilitator and help with the leg work.
