This beat requires an organized, planned approach to effectively cover several school districts in the area, with a primary focus on El Dorado. The education reporter is also responsible for organizing a weekly section dedicated to education that is provided to teachers and schools in the area throughout the school year.

The ideal candidate is comfortable taking photos and video, and using social media. This position requires some night availability to cover school board meetings.

They now maintain a regular schedule of nationally known artists.
