The Buffalo News seeks a reporter to cover how the health care industry is reshaping Western New York.
Buffalo is a city in the midst of an economic revival. At the center of the story is a burgeoning medical sector with big, competitive employers, startups seeking to capitalize on medical innovation and a growing medical campus.
This reporter will juggle a beat that requires a lot of versatility. The ideal candidates should be as comfortable writing stories about the changing ways we pay for health care as they are chronicling the way neighborhoods are changing because of medical campus development.
This reporter should have experience digging through public records and data to identify stories and trends, as well as a proven ability to break news, turn around in-depth stories on tight deadlines and juggle the demands of reaching a digital audience.
Candidates should have significant enterprise reporting experience.
