Colorado Rockies newspaper seeks government, business, real estate reporter

The Summit Daily News, located in the heart of the Colorado Rockies, seeks a reporter to cover local government, businesses, nonprofits and real estate. Here at the Summit Daily, we punch above our weight, producing award-winning, impactful journalism that seeks to hold authority accountable and strengthen the bonds of our communities.

We live to tell the story of Summit County, where people from across the country come to worship the outdoors. We're looking for an adventurous spirit with a love for mountain towns. However, this is not a position for beginners or someone looking to subsidize their powder habit. We need a mature, ambitious storyteller who can turn a phrase, shoot an image, edit a video and send a tweet — all on deadline.

Full disclosure: It snows here — a lot, if we're lucky.
