Free. Fair. Local.
The Fort Worth Report is a nonprofit, nonpartisan digital news organization. With the support of our members, our quality, in-depth journalism is free. We publish without any obligation to outside owners or interests.
We cover all that is best about Fort Worth and Tarrant County: its personalities, neighborhoods, businesses, arts & culture, education, health and local government accountability. We tackle its problems and challenges, too, and spotlight solutions.
The Fort Worth Report began in April 2021 with a small staff focused on solutions journalism and filling in the gaps in coverage. As we continue to grow, we focus on finding excellent staff members who want to report and write relevant and impactful stories that shed light on important issues.
Education reporter: Our news team needs a reporter adept at juggling quick turns and in-depth coverage of local education stories, with a focus on following the money and how schools improve student outcomes. Education is one of the most important issues in booming Fort Worth and affects all parts of our community. We offer a competitive salary plus health insurance (medical, dental, vision), generous holiday, sick and vacation leave, and flexible work hours.
Fellowships: Our fellowship program provides aspiring journalists the opportunity to sharpen their reporting and multimedia skills and to learn with our exceptional news team. We are a nonprofit, nonpartisan news organization with an emphasis on free, fair and local news. These fall positions are part time.
