Central Utah/Growth, Wealth & Poverty Reporter

University of Utah
Provo, UT


$50,000 - $53,000
KUER is looking for an ambitious reporter to cover statewide issues of growth, wealth and poverty as well as the diverse politics, culture and more of Central Utah. The successful candidate will be based in Utah’s Provo-Orem metropolitan area and be part of KUER’s statewide team of curious and compassionate journalists. In 2021, Provo was the 8th fastest growing metro in the country. It’s home to Brigham Young University, owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Utah Valley University, which has the largest student population in the state, and sits between agricultural lands and a burgeoning tech industry. As the state continues to grow, this area is a microcosm of how Utah deals with cultural and economic change. Seeking to explain this transition, the reporter will be responsible for producing compelling and thought-provoking daily stories and long-form features across radio, web and other digital platforms.
