Company: The Coloradoan

The Coloradoan, a 25,000 circulation paper nestled at the foothills of Colorado's front range, is seeking a dynamic reporter who can cover three key areas that ignite Fort Collins residents' passions. People in Fort Collins stay fit, play hard and know how to relax — the right reporter will be able to juggle all three portions of the beat to deliver stories that are compelling, useful, fun and hard hitting. 


There's more to this role than beer tastings; from small craft operations to gigantic bottling plants, breweries are a huge part of our economic engine. Proximity to the mountains mean that fitness is big business as well as recreation. You should feel comfortable writing about not just the taste and texture of a meal, but the economics behind it as well.


We're looking for a versatile journalist. We expect you to be as deft with adjectives as you are with a GoPro. Social media prowess is a must, as is a mature sense of what it takes to build a personal brand and answer a community's questions. It's a daunting batch of skills, but if you're the right reporter, you're up to the challenge. Bachelor’s degree in Journalism or equivalent experience required.


Here at the Coloradoan, we're out to be more than just a newspaper — we believe in renewing the contract between community journalists and our readers. This year, we were honored as the state's most innovative newspaper from the Colorado Press Association, and Gannett presented its 2012 innovator of the year award to the paper's editor.


Fort Collins is a city known for its great quality of life and off-the-charts educational attainment. It boasts a booming craft brew scene, Colorado State University, a vibrant downtown, bike paths that traverse the community, hiking and all that the Rocky Mountains have to offer. 


Join us in continuing to produce great work and proving to the rest of the nation that community journalism is far from dead.


Coloradoan Media Group is part of the Gannett Co. an international media and marketing solutions company that informs and engages more than 100 million people every month through its powerful network of broadcast, digital, mobile and publishing properties. We offer a competitive salary and a comprehensive benefits package that includes a 401(k) plan. Qualified applicants should apply by visiting


Coloradoan Media Group is committed to diversity and proud to be an equal opportunity employer. Employment is contingent on passing a pre-employment, post-offer drug screen and background check.
