Description:


Capital city newspaper seeks dynamic newsroom leader


The Wyoming Tribune Eagle, Cheyenne’s five-day-a-week newspaper, is looking for a dynamic journalist with a passion for local news to serve as our assistant managing editor and editor of our monthly business magazine, the Wyoming Business Report.

Do you love helping reporters tell impactful stories?


Do you enjoy working with photographers and other editors to provide readers with the best news coverage possible?


Are you energized by breaking news stories online, and then working to provide the deeper, broader context behind the event?


Do you aspire to learn from and later serve as the top editor of a dynamic newsroom team?

If so, we want you to join us in Cheyenne! With more than 150 years of history covering southeast Wyoming, the WTE’s readers depend on us for coverage of city and county government, state government, crime and court, health care, education, entertainment, sports and much more. An award-winning newspaper with a strong presence online through websites and apps, we’re looking for an experienced newsroom leader to work with our managing editor to take us to the next level.

The ideal candidate is someone who has done just about everything in the newsroom and is willing to dig in and get the job done, regardless of whether that’s rewriting a news release or guiding a reporter’s multi-part series to publication. We’re also looking for someone with a drive to be first – but always accurate – online, as well as some depth of experience with social media and website analytics.

Requirements

This position requires a professional who is passionate about journalism and the impact it has on our local communities. If you feel like you’d be the right fit, send a resume, cover letter and 3-5 references to Managing Editor Brian Martin at bmartin@wyomingnews.com.

Cheyenne is conveniently located 90 minutes north of Denver and 45 minutes east of Laramie, home of Wyoming’s only four-year university. We are less than two hours from Rocky Mountain National Park, and close to many other scenic outdoor areas, including great places to hike, fish, ski and bike. If you’re looking for a small city with plenty of amenities, but still maintains a small-town feel, this is the perfect fit for you!

All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability or veteran status.

Benefits

The fringe benefits include medical (split between employer and employee), dental and vision options (employee paid). There are three company-sponsored benefits, including short-term disability, long-term disability and a term life insurance policy. The company pays for these six major holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s, Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day). In addition, employees accrue 3.33 hours of paid leave per pay period in the first year of employment (80 hours) and increasing to 5.0 hours per pay period (120 hours) after their one-year anniversary of employment. The company has the option of making a discretionary match to the 401K retirement plan after year’s end.
