WRAL News seeks a full-time multimedia journalist to be based in and cover Eastern North Carolina. This journalist will report on the under-served eastern third of our state by producing in depth stories for our on-air and digital platforms.

Its healthcare deserts, along with its complex economic, agricultural and environmental issues, deserve more coverage.

The successful candidate for this position will embrace big-picture journalism, while also being flexible enough to cover day-of and breaking news. Requirements of the position include shooting and editing video, writing for television and digital platforms, and being active on social media and in the community.
