This new investigative and enterprise hub was launched in 2020 and is led by longtime West Virginia journalists Greg Moore, a former editor at the Charleston Gazette-Mail, and Ken Ward Jr., a MacArthur Foundation “Genius” grant winner for his longtime work covering coal mining and other polluting industries. The staff includes four current RFA Corps members.
Location: Charleston, West Virginia
Beat: Data-based articles as part of new Enterprise Hub
Position: Data-based articles as part of a new Enterprise Hub. This hub works to bring back more frequent enterprise coverage of vital issues facing our state. Part of our hope is that we can foster creation of a West Virginia nonprofit organization that would, among other things, grow the resources to continue the work of those corps members when their RFA stints are over. As the Seattle Times is doing, our long-term goal would be to use the community’s support to greatly expand our enterprise team.
This position is sponsored in part by Report for America, a nonprofit journalism organization that helps newsrooms cover under-covered issues.
Skills: Data, writing
