Maine's demographics have shifted in recent years, with a growing population of immigrants arriving from various countries around the world. In particular, there's been recent growth in the number of refugees from Congo, Angola, Somalia, and other countries in Africa and Asia. A beat focused on new Mainers and the economy will make strong inroads into covering these communities. We are seeing emerging trends reflected in many different ways; at schools, which must prepare resources to help the students of immigrant parents; in the downtowns of Maine's largest cities where immigrant-owned businesses are opening up; with social service agencies trying to bridge gaps for professionals who arrive with credentials from their home countries that need to be translated into U.S. access; and with new Mainers searching for meaningful work, and a taste of home. We want to cover these important stories and better reflect our increasing diversity in Maine and in our newsroom. The journalist will be creating audio stories for radio and also print stories for digital.
