The Montana Standard, a daily newspaper in Butte, is seeking a sports editor.

The Standard’s award-winning sports desk covers more than a dozen high schools and Montana Tech, a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. We’re the leading source of news for southwestern Montana.

We’re looking for a leader who knows that a vibrant sports section goes beyond a box score, someone with innovative ideas who can add a little polish to an already seasoned staff.

The job includes directing full-time and part-time reporters. Journalists with design skills are encouraged to apply.

The ideal applicant will have leadership experience at a daily newspaper, but we’ll also consider reporters with proven track records ready to make the jump into management. You’ll join an aggressive newsroom with a renewed focus on digital and enterprise reporting.  

The Standard’s coverage area includes some of the nation’s premiere recreation destinations. Hunting, fishing, skiing and camping opportunities abound. A hub for the regional economy, Butte also offers shopping, a vibrant arts scene, and affordable housing.

We offer an excellent benefits package, including medical, dental, vision, 401K plan, and paid time off.  We are an equal-opportunity employer. You can see our website at and learn more about our parent company at
