Company: Casper Star Tribune
Opinion Editor
Job Status:  Full-time
Ad Expires: 
December 13, 2013
Job ID: 1542049


The Casper Star-Tribune, Wyoming’s most vibrant and essential news organization, is looking for someone to take ownership of the daily and Sunday Opinion pages. This savvy and experienced staff member will help shape the discussion of staff editorials on our editorial board, bringing key topics to the table for meaningful debate and consideration. Furthermore, our opinion editor will engage in a positive way with our print and digital audience when it comes to letters, guest columns, social media and online forum discussions. The editor will need to ensure that our readers’ views and concerns are reflected in print and online every single day, and he or she also will be responsible for selecting local, state, national and international columnists to enhance our opinion coverage.

The ideal candidate for this role will have a wealth of experience when it comes to opinion and column writing, and also will place a premium on working in a collaborative environment with a team of invested newsroom managers. Candidates with reporting experience will be given special consideration.

It’s not all work, of course, in Wyoming. We have an established, historic small-town feel, but with our offerings of movie theaters, restaurants, shopping and the arts, we also provide a worthwhile social experience. Miss the big city? Denver is an easy drive. Want some privacy? We’re at the base of a beautiful mountain range where you can hike and get a breath of fresh air. Outdoor opportunities are endless. We love it here.

The Casper Star-Tribune is a Lee Enterprises news organization with a daily circulation of about 25,000. We offer an excellent benefits package, including medical, dental, vision, paid holidays and vacation. We are an equal opportunity employer. You can see our website at and learn more about our company at

If this sounds like you, then send a cover letter, three to five opinion writing examples and detail your online and social media experience at If you have any other questions about the job, feel free to email Star-Tribune editor Jason Adrians at
