ABOUT THE PBS NEWSHOUR
With roots in public service journalism beginning in 1973, the PBS NewsHour today is on a mission to bring balanced, in-depth news coverage to all. Innovative and fast-paced, life at the NewsHour is focused on collaboration, trust, and above all, enterprising important, considered news. NewsHour is unique in that the team is small and tight-knit, and must accomplish what no other daily news organization does: be the gold-standard of reporting for a nightly, hour-long broadcast, and to crucial digital platforms.
You’ll enjoy working at the NewsHour if you enjoy contributing to meaningful reporting, working on small teams in which your ideas are not just valued but vital, and pushing yourself to grow your skills every day.

You’ll support the PBS NewsHour from a data and analytics perspective. Your work will help determine the strategy for our marketing, corporate communications, foundation and government development, and editorial teams.

We’ll also have you participate in external funder meetings and internal WETA data teams and committees.
YOUR FIRST 90 DAYS

WHAT SUCCESS LOOKS LIKE
You are not only smart with the data you pull, but the analysis you provide stakeholders. You take initiative and bring new ideas to the table.

You work closely and collaboratively with colleagues in your department and across the whole organization.
