Part-Time Job Announcement! Streetsblog L.A. Looking for Journalist for SGV Coverage

1:47 PM PDT on March 23, 2022

Streetsblog Los Angeles is looking for an SGV Correspondent to both do original reporting and co-host a podcast on transportation, open space, public health, urban design, housing, and equity in the San Gabriel Valley. Kris Fortin, who has written for Streetsblog on three different beats over a decade, is leaving us for a great new opportunity (more on that later), so we're looking for a new writer to help cover this beat.

This is a part-time position averaging roughly 10-15 hours per week, and the writer will be expected to produce roughly two original stories and co-host two podcasts every month. The position pays $18,000 per year with two weeks paid vacation in addition to extra weeks off on Thanksgiving week and the week surrounding New Years.

We’re not necessarily looking for a professional podcaster for this position, but some experience conducting interviews or being interviewed on television/radio/podcast is a plus. Knowledge and passion about the San Gabriel Valley region and the issues we cover is a must.

If you’re not familiar with our work, check out some of these stories to get an idea of our SGV coverage:
