KC Biz Journal seeks health care/tech reporter
The Kansas City Business Journal is looking for a journalist who is fascinated by what will happen, not merely what has happened.
Our health care/big tech beat combines coverage of the changing face of how heath care is delivered, organized and paid for with coverage of three forward-looking area public companies: Sprint, Cerner and Garmin.
Tackle such topics as the role of big data in health care, how Sprint will keep up with larger rivals and the nation’s insatiable thirst for mobile data, why big-money investors are buying physician practices and more.
Chronicle how local research becomes the latest treatments for people and animals — and what it all means for the Kansas City-area economy.
Develop and maintain source networks that allow you to beat local and national competition on original stories. Report breaking news through social media and online stories, then put the news in context through follow-up stories and long-form packages. The Business Journal keeps a tight focus on local business news and a strong emphasis on original stories (not press release rewrites or localizations of national pieces).
Our reporters must:
– Be able to develop a source network
– Be able to report the news through a variety of media
– Have a strong working knowledge of SEC documents
– Be able to generate stories independently, but also be able to work collaboratively on larger projects
