The Sheridan (Wyo.) Press, an innovative and award-winning community daily newspaper, has an opening for a dynamic and driven politics/policy reporter.

Our leadership team is recruiting individuals who want to work with the best and be a part of an evolving and forward-thinking newsroom that operates more like a start-up than a 100-year old news organization. The top candidates will have a natural interest in public policy and must be curious, have comfort with public records requests, be willing to navigate complex issues and ask tough questions of public figures.

The ability and drive to approach issues with outside-the-box thinking will be required as The Sheridan Press continues pushing the boundaries of journalism outside of print media.

A thorough understanding of AP style, attention to detail and the willingness to research will also be required.

Candidates should be able to work independently and have a strong understanding of what community journalism means.

The Press is an independent newspaper with family and local ownership and with print and online news delivery platforms. Sheridan is a thriving community of 18,000 with a college, a lively arts/culture/music scene, a busy downtown and many other amenities, including unlimited outdoor recreational opportunities.

Please send a resume, cover letter and writing samples to kristen.czaban@thesheridanpress.com.
