We are hiring a full time, professional journalist for our new morning radio news program featuring voices and perspectives of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.

This year, we are excited to be participating in Canada’s new 'Local Journalism Initiative' which supports the creation of original civic journalism relevant to the diverse needs of people living in news deserts and areas of news poverty across Canada.

Vancouver Co-op Radio is seeking an energetic, keen reporter with a masters in journalism or equivalent for a unique and exceptional opportunity. You will cover the daily news with an emphasis on local residents, Nations, businesses, NGOs in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. This unique and vibrant neighbourhood, often referred to as the poorest postal code in Canada, is home to diverse and interesting people and cultures who are continually mis-represented in the mainstream.
