WORK @ THE TEXAS NEWSROOM

No present positions.

NPR and its member stations have created an innovative new system of regional news hubs designed to reshape the journalism landscape — and the prototype for the nation is in Texas.

The Texas Newsroom is a collaboration between the Texas stations and NPR. The managing stations are KUT in Austin, KERA in Dallas, Houston Public Media and Texas Public Radio in San Antonio.

Texas is a great state for journalism. It is a huge, multi-culture, multi-ethnic expanse of land and people, with as many distinct identities and regions as most countries. As a border state, one of the fastest growing states in the country, and the second largest economy in the United States, what happens in Texas is often national – and sometimes international – news.
