The Frontier is growing its newsroom with two new reporting positions. We are a nonprofit dedicated to in-depth and investigative reporting in Oklahoma. We are hoping to hire reporters with at least a few years of professional experience but are also open to considering recent college graduates if they are a good fit for our newsroom.

We value passionate journalists who don’t follow the pack, ask tough, thoughtful questions and are motivated to do their best work. We provide the time and support to produce good journalism and opportunities for professional development. We also value work-life balance and offer some availability for remote work and flexible hours.

You will work with and learn from some of the best journalists in the state and may have opportunities to collaborate on projects with other local and national newsrooms. Journalists have gone on from our small newsroom to work at The Washington Post, ProPublica, The Marshall Project and The Daily Beast. Come grow with us.

Tulsa reporter 

This reporter will cover Tulsa city and county government, schools and other local news. The job will be more focused on producing news stories at a quicker pace. We anticipate this reporter will write one to two stories a week. We are looking for someone who can find great news stories that go beyond what’s on the city council meeting agenda. The job is based in Tulsa.

Compensation: $50,000 to $58,000 a year, plus benefits. 

Housing reporter

This position will cover housing issues, homelessness and evictions in Oklahoma. We also want stories examining how people impacted by those issues interact with Oklahoma social services. Coverage will include some quicker-turn stories but we will also give the reporter the time and support to work on longer-term investigative and narrative-driven stories. This job is based in Oklahoma City. 

Compensation: $50,000 to $58,000 a year, plus benefits. 

Applicants may send their resumes, cover letters, and three to five samples of their best work to Frontier Executive Editor Dylan Goforth at
