West Coast Media Jobs: With open roles at KTLA, Bakersfield Californian, KOMO/KUNS & more!
If you’re looking for a job, leave a comment about what you’re looking for on our Spring Gig Seekers Thread. It’s open to everyone; you don’t need to be a subscriber or based on the West Coast to participate.
Check out lots of talented journalists!
The Gig Seekers thread is sent out quarterly on the 15th day of January, April, July, and October.
Sorry for the lack of content on this front! It’s been a busy winter/spring teaching, closing a union contract, and dealing with some other work stuff. But I promise this feature will be back soon!
