The Sheridan (Wyo.) Press, an innovative and award-winning community daily newspaper in the best part of the state, has an opening for the position of government reporter.


The successful candidate will have an appreciation and understanding of how local and state governments operate. A focus on how big issues can and will impact our community is key to our readers.

This beat covers the meat and potatoes of our community.


Once settled, we’ll encourage our new reporter to dive in-depth to create a multi-platform piece of enterprise reporting for our readers. Projects such as these are aimed at more than just the nuts and bolts of government.
