Business/Health/Environment Reporter, Wyoming Tribune Eagle, Cheyenne, Wyoming

Award-winning daily newspaper seeks flexible, energetic reporter

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle is seeking a skilled reporter to join our award-winning news team, with primary beat coverage including local business and economic development issues, health care and the environment.

The ideal candidate will have a strong background in covering any or all of these issues, and a willingness to pitch in and cover stories from other beats as they cross over. The ideal candidate will also have a hunger to tell large-scale stories that include visual and digital components, as well as personal stories.

Earlier this year, the Tribune Eagle was named the best daily newspaper in the state by the Wyoming Press Association. Located in the state capital of Cheyenne, we provide daily news coverage of the southeast part of the state, while also covering the Wyoming State Legislature and the University of Wyoming. Cheyenne residents enjoy easy access to Denver and the Front Range area, as well as many outdoor recreation opportunities.

Essential skills and requirements:

·         Bachelor’s degree or higher in journalism.

·         Experience writing stories under a daily newspaper deadline.

·         Experience with community journalism.

·         Comfortable writing quickly and consistently in AP style.

·         Strong eye for details.

Desired skills and experience:

·         Experience writing enterprise and long-form content, as well as telling personal stories.

·         Experience covering news on social media platforms.

·         Some experience with photography, video and/or design preferred, but not required.

This position is full-time and offers competitive salary and benefits. Please submit a cover letter, résumé and writing clips (3-5) to Managing Editor Brian Martin at bmartin@wyomingnews.com for consideration
