Our news organization is a multilingual, hybrid partnership between Univision Chicago and The Chicago Reporter. Our goal is to combine enterprise and data-driven investigative reporting with the reach and brand-affinity of the largest Spanish-language broadcast news organization to address the needs of nearly 2.1 million Hispanics throughout the Chicagoland region.
Chicago Reporter / Univision
Location: * Midwest, Illinois
Beat: Aurora, Elgin, Joliet, Cicero, Waukegan and other Chicago exurbs
Position: This reporter is paired with a dedicated editor/producer to shape coverage of an exurban beat that stretches across the outer ring suburbs of Chicago, including communities like Aurora, Elgin, Joliet, Cicero and Waukegan. These communities are just far enough from Chicago newsrooms to not make the normal news cycles unless violence or scandal befalls them. These suburbs — and exurbs—have over the last decade become the new ports of entry for immigrants due to the presence and growth of low-skilled jobs, affordable housing and good schools. But media have not been able to keep up. Our goal is to focus on humanizing these communities, embedding with them and understanding their information needs. The goal is to produce enterprise coverage off the news as well as identify important stories that are not otherwise getting told.
