Break out of the ordinary.  Come north where the air is clean and the stories are plentiful. CBC Yellowknife is looking for self-starters who love to tell stories... all kinds of stories. The North is in transition. We are seeing the effects of climate change, through crumbling roads and buildings.  We're seeing a rise in the rights and power of indigenous groups.  And, we have lots of "characters", who make great stories. There are good opportunities for learning and travel. We believe in helping reporters do their best work while maintaining a healthy work-life balance. 


Your role:

As a Reporter/Editor, your primary objective is to perform reporting and editorial assignments related to the gathering, writing and presentation of program material for all three of our media platforms: Radio, Television and the Web.
