You’ll report on all facets of life in Richmond, a city of 110,000 people who live in the shadow of a giant refinery and worry about their air quality – but who also monitor Monarch butterflies and Bay oysters. Perhaps the Bay Area’s least-understood urban hub, Richmond is a crucible of great stories on politics and police, health and environment, business and economy, housing and immigration, food and arts. You’ll hone your reporting and writing skills as you cover a beat for our Richmond Confidential news site, and get opportunities to pitch other local, regional and national media.
