Multimedia Reporter & Writer (Race & Equity)

Boston

This position requires excellence in multimedia storytelling, particularly in audio, as well as the ability to write for the Monitor’s print and digital products. The position will put a premium on addressing racial as well as social and cultural issues, though other themes and topics will also be covered as news or editorial judgment requires.

The position is founded on the Monitor’s distinct approach to news and requires a commitment to journalism that ​is ​constructive​,​ thoughtful, and invested in seeing the humanity of all.  The Monitor is a tool for readers who want more than news – they want to be a part of the solution. Our coverage of social and cultural issues is a vital part of this promise, and our team will interact frequently with our audience, through articles, social media, events, and partnerships.
