Host, All Things Considered
It’s a big job in the biggest city!
WNYC, which serves the nation’s largest public radio audience, is seeking an exceptional journalist to host the local broadcast of All Things Considered, NPR’s signature news program.
Every day, the WNYC newsroom seeks to bring fresh, smart, and unique content to our various platforms that reflect the diversity and sophistication of our audience and the region at large. This role is central to that effort.
The ideal candidate will be an enthusiastic self-starter with strong ambition and imagination. You will possess a warmth and authority on-air, combined with a reporter’s curiosity, an editor’s judgment, and the ability to hit a time post. You will be dogged in pursuit of the news, demonstrating a deep curiosity for life in the New York City/New Jersey metro region while also remaining well-versed in national and international news. At every turn, you will be on the ground with listeners, thinking about what they need to step out the door and tackle the day: key news headlines, a check of the weather, a note about the commute, or just a moment of humor.
In addition to serving as the leading local voice of All Things Considered, the host will take an active role in shaping the daily editorial agenda. That includes contributing ideas for interviews, recommending stories for hourly newscasts, pitching lines of reporting, and occasionally pursuing stories in the field. The host will also work closely with the Producer Corps -- a group of multi-talented reporter/producers -- to drive our day-of news gathering.
The successful candidate will bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the role. They will have undertaken enterprising reporting projects, authoritatively anchored breaking news, and conducted news-maker interviews. They will know how to be calm, nimble, and creative in the face of tight deadlines. And they will have demonstrated a unique ability to connect with listeners around our shared experience: cutting through the clutter to engage directly with them and the sense of place they are experiencing from day-to-day.
