The American Homefront Project is seeking pitches for 3 -5 minute radio stories of national interest. The Project is a CPB-funded collaboration of North Carolina Public Radio/WUNC, WUSF-Tampa, and KPCC-Los Angeles. Our stories are available free to every public radio station through PRX.
The American Homefront Project reports on military life and veterans issues. We visit bases to chronicle how American troops are working and living. We meet military families. We talk with veterans — in their homes, on their jobs, at school, at VA hospitals — to learn about the challenges they face.
We cover major policy issues at the Pentagon and Department of Veterans Affairs, and we report on the family issues that service members and veterans experience in their daily lives. From the youngest military recruits to the veterans of World War II, we're reporting in-depth stories about Americans who serve.
We seek well-produced, sound-rich, in-depth stories. We maintain national standards both in our journalism and audio quality. We require web text and photos with all stories.
Compensation is $1000 per story, plus pre-approved travel expenses. ALL STORIES MUST BE COMPLETE BY MAY 31, 2017.
