The Houston Chronicle, one of the largest newspapers in the U.S., is looking for an enterprising reporter to cover NASA and space science. Houston has a five-decade history with space exploration and the legendary Johnson Space Center headquarters.
Further, Houston and Texas will play a big part of space exploration and research in the 21st century – with a licensed spaceport in the works and Elon Musk’s Space X initiative setting roots in the Lone Star State. Houstonians have a deep interest in space science, technology and space exploration. The city is a diverse, international metropolitan area anchored by some of the world’s largest energy companies, celebrated health institutions, fast-growing technology sector and the nation’s second-largest port.
This is a high-profile beat that requires strong story-telling that can only be done if you get out of the newsroom. It demands a reporter who can take complicated subjects and tell them with clarity and intrigue. This reporter will need to demonstrate a sharpened ability to write engaging, sophisticated stories for digital and print platforms.
This demanding mission requires an experienced hand. Previous experience covering space science preferred, but if you’re a sharp-minded journalist who wants to produce smart journalism, we want to hear from you.
