The E.W. Scripps Company and Google are partnering on a multi-year initiative to transition experienced journalists with primarily print news backgrounds into broadcast news careers: the Scripps Journalism Journey Initiative.
Journalists selected for participation in the Initiative will be hired into full-time career positions in Scripps local and national media newsrooms. The program provides mid-career transitions into video-driven storytelling through extensive training and support, including mentoring, job shadowing, hands-on work and individual coaching. Additional learning opportunities may include professional conferences, programs through the Google News Initiative, Poynter, journalism school programs, National Association of Broadcasters or Society of Professional Journalists.
Positions may include beat/specialty reporter, specialty executive producer, photojournalist, editor/manager, documentary producer and copy editor.
Applications for the Journalism Journey Initiative are expected to be available in early summer.
Scripps is currently hiring a director, a senior talent acquisition partner and a learning and development specialist for the program, which is expected to launch in Q4 2022. (Click to apply for each of these three program management positions.)
