Daily Aggregation Writer
TheGrio seeks an experienced reporter and writer with an earnest commitment to, and love of, storytelling for the Black community.

The aggregation writer must have a proven record of writing quickly and accurately in a daily print or digital newsroom.

Additionally, the daily aggregation writer will draw from their solid hard news experience to ensure every story contains the fundamentals – those five W’s – and provides context on how the news affects Black people.
This position is based in Atlanta, Washington DC, Los Angeles, or New York.
