Open Positions

Join our growing newsroom!

  • Would you like to join a growing team of journalists in a different kind of newsroom? The Public’s Radio is a non-profit public media organization serving Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts. We are a small team with big goals. Like other small shops, we struggle with the balance between daily news coverage, long-form enterprise journalism and the growing need to be meeting new audiences in the digital space. We know we’re not a replacement for the newspapers of old. We don’t rush to cover every story that might be considered “daily news”. Rather, our focus is on covering our region through a community-focused lens, focusing on stories with depth, insight and humanity. The Public’s Radio is looking for a Metro Desk Reporter and a Newport Bureau Reporter to join our team.

Corporate Support Representative

Reporting to the director of corporate support, the corporate support representative is responsible for helping achieve station sponsorship goals through his or her own direct sales. This position is part of a collaborative team helping to further The Public’s Radio’s mission in Rhode Island and Southern MA. The idea candidate is a natural networker plugged into the vibrant local market, with strong relationship selling skills to develop win-win solutions for our clients. Our business partners support The Public’s Radio because of a shared belief in the value of our programming and mission, and an understanding that their support can help them reach potential customers and clients.
