Kaiser Health News (Denver, Colorado)

Posted 2 weeks ago

Location: Denver, Colorado
Status: Full-Time
Program Area: Kaiser Health News

About the Job:

KFF, the non-profit health policy analysis, polling and journalism organization, is seeking a Colorado-based correspondent to join the staff of Kaiser Health News (KHN), its editorially independent newsroom distributing in-depth coverage of health issues across the country. While Kaiser Health News (KHN) has a vibrant and ambitious staff based primarily in Washington, D.C., and California, we are expanding our team to increase coverage of health issues in important parts of the country like Colorado.

We are seeking a Denver-based reporter with a strong interest in health and health policy to produce stories on state and regional struggles over health care for both local and national audiences. We want scoops; we want analyses; we want lively people-centric features. We want you to help infuse our coverage with rapid-fire reporting and thoughtful writing on the big issues affecting people in Colorado and the surrounding region. Your job is to make sense of policy-making and politics – and more. Be a wonk, but be one who sees the humanity of this job.

We hope to find a self-starter who is a constant fountain of ideas. We’d like you to have four or more years of experience (preferably with significant experience covering health issues). Knowing how to tell stories with data is a plus.

We want someone who wants to be part of an ambitious and fast-growing organization and can collaborate and contribute on daily stories, big projects, investigations and podcasts.

Tell us why you want to work at this great organization and why no one else could do this job better than you could. We’re excited to hear from you.
