• Indigenous affairs reporter - Tulsa, OK

    Lee Enterprises IncTulsa, OK 74157

    Job #2502372197

  • The Tulsa World, a Lee Enterprises news organization, and ICT, formerly Indian Country Today, are looking for an Oklahoma-based reporter focused on Indigenous peoples and issues to create stories for a national audience.

    This reporter will focus on assignments that will take the person all over Oklahoma, filing daily stories, breaking news, writing exclusive stories and working on project reporting to give audiences the clearest view of Indigenous communities today and document topics rooted in the Indigenous world, which includes the nation-to-nation relationship between tribal nations and the United States.

    This is not just a reporting position publishing within a local market, but one that will be amplified by ICT's national digital platform with a 5.5 million readership and newscast reaching more than 75 million households and Lee Enterprises' print and digital products in 77 markets in 12 states. This reporter will work with another indigenous affairs reporter based in South Dakota at the Rapid City Journal to tell the stories that most news organizations don't have the ability to do. This position is based anywhere within Oklahoma.

    Candidates for this job should have experience filing stories on deadline and the ability to report, organize and write in-depth stories. We are open to an entry-level reporter. This reporter will work with editors at the Tulsa World and ICT and help produce photos, videos and podcasts to supplement content and be used on newscasts. In addition to creating content, this reporter will also engage with audiences and connect content through social media. We expect this reporter to be immersed in Indigenous communities to provide thoughtful and thorough storytelling.

    Key skills include:

    Interviewing and source development

    Advanced research skills including FOIA aptitude and document analysis

    Ability to write crisply and compellingly

    Using background in American Indian and Alaska Native issues, histories, and cultures, and federal Indian policy, to provide context in news stories

In addition to the Tulsa World newsroom, the Tulsa World Media Company operates a full-service digital advertising and marketing agency that helps local businesses and organizations find new audiences.
