Capital B is a first-of-its-kind local and national nonprofit news organization reporting for Black communities across the country. Cofounded by CEO Lauren Williams (former senior vice president and editor-in-chief of Vox) and Chief Audience Officer Akoto Ofori-Atta (former managing editor of The Trace), Capital B is looking for talented, driven reporters who are passionate about reporting on issues affecting Black Atlantans.
There is a growing distrust between Black audiences and traditional news outlets in Atlanta, which has given way to misinformation and a dire need for honest storytelling. Our reporters will cultivate sources and build relationships in Atlanta's Black communities — from residents and community organizers to policy researchers — to find stories that the city's mainstream news media missed.
Metro Atlanta is home to 2 million Black people, with unreported and underreported stories around every corner. Capital B reporters will cover beats including criminal justice, state and local politics, education, housing, climate, business/economics, and health. Let us know in your application which beat(s) most excite you!
These positions report to the Capital B Atlanta Editor.

Capital B is open to candidates with diverse experience, and we know that some very strong candidates won’t have all of the qualifications we list. Don’t be shy — apply!
