Its monthly TV show is broadcast on the fourth Sunday of the month on KRCB TV 22 on Comcast and DirecTV.
The successful candidate will speak fluent “sustainability” and have 3-5 years covering clean energy, climate, and related beats. Climate One covers carbon from business, policy, advocacy and scientific perspectives. General knowledge of broad areas is more useful than deep and narrow expertise.
