Description:

BUSINESS/PUBLIC SAFETY REPORTER

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 business and public safety reporter.

The successful candidate will have an appreciation and understanding of both how small businesses operate and how to deal with large energy corporations. A focus on how big issues can and will impact our community is key to our readers. This means a daily diet of economic development meetings, building sources in the business community and tracking national and state legislation that could impact businesses in Sheridan County. A knowledge of public records is helpful.

In addition, the beat requires crime reporting — both breaking news and the daily court proceedings. Developing sources within the local law enforcement community is expected and understanding the court process will be a necessity.

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 email  your resume and cover letter to Annette Bryl at annette@thesheridanpress.com.
