Description:

Wyoming’s fastest-growing news organization is looking for a tourism and business reporter.

Tourism is the second-largest industry in Wyoming and a year-round industry because of the unparalleled outdoor experiences.  It’s the real West.

Tourism is the fun part of the job.  It’s booming out here.  So many places to see and to experience.  It’s exciting.

General business, meanwhile, is at a crossroads. This is more challenging.  Wyoming is facing real struggles when it comes to diversification of its economy.

Wyoming has depended on the minerals industry for decades.  It’s been trying to diversify for decades as well.  

Tourism has turned the corner.  But what’s next?

Look at it this way:  Tourism is the dessert.  Business is the entree.

As they say, “If you don’t eat your meat, you can’t have any pudding!”  (Google it).

As for you....

You're a great writer. You like to travel. You understand the demands of a digital job.

Most importantly, you’re unbiased.  You don’t sit in an ivory tower (there are enough of those out here).  You’re of the people.

If you have an agenda outside of great journalism, move on.  We don’t believe in “activist journalism.”

We're an outstanding organization with great people. Our audience has quadrupled in the last year. We were acquired in February by an owner who believes in quality journalism and quality journalists. Unlike so much of the news industry, we're expanding.

You'll be surrounded by a group of people who care about high-quality journalism. Quality editors, quality reporters, all in a quality environment.

Great benefits too.
