Job Description


This position is represented by the NewsGuild-CWA.

The reporter may work on a beat or may be general assignment. Some of this work may involve a more immediate response to news events.

of breaking news.
- Deep familiarity with a major U.S. city where the

enterprise team does not currently have a reporter and a

willingness to live there.
- Willingness to travel frequently.
- Partner with colleagues throughout the NBC News

Group, occasionally help develop ideas for segments,

panel discussions, series and news reports

Desired Characteristics
- Based in the western United States, including the
