Join WPLN's award-winning news team as a Metro reporter

You're the kind of reporter who is excited by the intersection of policy and people.

The recent boom in Nashville and Middle Tennessee has resulted in huge opportunities as well as major problems: congested roads, development fights, rising rents, crowded schools, changing neighborhoods, tensions over tourism. In the middle of it all is a city that used to be known as a "big small town," now trying to figure out its new identity as the poster child for growth.

That's where you come in.
