News - Reporter- Yonkers

The Journal News/lohud is looking for a reporter to build upon a bold experiment in journalism in our coverage of Yonkers.

Over the past two years, we have reinvented our coverage of Yonkers, moving away from a focus on crime and police-blotter reporting that provoked distrust and tension, toward more people-focused reporting in the citys neighborhoods rich and poor that could build trust and draw new audiences.

In this beat, you will be expected to report and write on the people who live in this diverse, multicultural, booming city, the fourth-largest in New York, in a way that reflects the fullness of their lives. One storyline is how Yonkers like many cities is grappling with how to balance growth and development against the needs of longtime residents.

Most important, the Yonkers reporter will write for, not about, people most impacted by Americas legacy of discrimination and its ongoing impacts in areas including health, housing, policing and employment, with a special and immediate focus on how institutions, local government, employers, nonprofits and schools will act on the social and racial inequities laid bare in the dual crises of COVID-19 and the killing of George Floyd.

The beat is not all hard news. You will tell the stories about culture, people and family life in the city, which is being energized by an influx of newcomers.

If you value, as we do, making journalism more diverse, equitable and inclusive, and are passionate, as we are, about flexing your reporting and writing muscles to help find new audiences through riveting storytelling, this is a role for you.

The ideal candidate will:

Develop relationships with public officials, citizens, experts and others in order to provide unique insight into issues of importance to residents of Yonkers

Give special focus to the impact of policing tactics on members of marginalized communities, relying on interviews with community members, records searches and discussions with experts.

Seek out and rely on public records, including databases when appropriate, to examine how government agencies perform and how and when they fall short of their own goals and standards or cause harm in the community.

Act as a public ambassador through community outreach and connect with influencers and engaged readers through social media.

Work with investigative and storytelling editors and audience analysts to shape reporting and storytelling to meet audience needs and interests on every platform.

Help people in underserved communities share their knowledge and their lived experience.

Build strong relationships to learn what information these community members need/want to know.

Determine the best digital platforms and methods of presentation to inform underserved communities.

Consistently make use of solutions journalism principles to produce outstanding enterprise work that leads to positive change within these communities.

This role requires a valid driver's license, reliable transportation, and the minimum liability insurance required by state law.



Gannett Co., Inc. is a proud equal opportunity employer. We are a drug free, EEO employer committed to a diverse workforce. We will consider all qualified candidates regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age, marital status, personal appearance, sexual orientation, gender identity, family responsibilities, disability, education, political affiliation, or veteran status.
