Pitch Us: Producer/Reporter, Gravy Podcast

Posted: October 22, 2020

The Southern Foodways Alliance seeks an experienced reporter/producer to create five 20-23 minute episodes for the award-winning Gravy podcast. The episodes should explore the Alabama Black Belt, and will air in Summer 2021. Payment for this batch of 5 episodes will be $17,500, all-inclusive. Deadline for applications is January 31, 2021. To hear previous Gravy episodes, visit Email [email protected] for more information, or to submit an application.

Gravy tells stories of the changing American South through food, broadly defined. We always want stories with a strong sense of character and place. If you have a strong, clear story idea, you should be able to sum it up in the following sentence: I’m telling a story about X, and it is interesting because Y.  Pitches to Gravy podcast should be made to [email protected] and include:  —5–7 episode ideas, outlined in approximately one paragraph per episode. SFA prefers to organize each season around a broad theme. For this batch, the Alabama Blackbelt is the theme. The reporter/producer may narrow the focus, if desired. —Link to a relevant sample of your previous radio or podcast work
