Description Position at Casper Star-Tribune The Casper Star-Tribune, Wyoming\u2019s statewide newspaper and top media organization, is seeking a talented reporter with strong investigative and storytelling skills to join our news team.\u00a0 Wyoming is the reddest state in the Union, which creates an anything-goes environment at the Capitol, where fewer politicians are tied to party and more speak their minds. This means an endless number of political stories beyond the typical sides on the left and right.\u00a0 In addition to the statehouse, you will cover our Washington delegation as it weighs in on local and national issues. You will be the state\u2019s political watchdog.\u00a0 Enterprise reporting is a must here. We\u2019re looking for candidates who are as comfortable filing FOIAs and asking tough questions of government leaders as they are sharing a cup of coffee with a rancher. Digital skills are also required \u2013 we want someone who is striving to break stories and find creative ways to tell them online.\u00a0 This is a senior beat, with opportunity for impactful journalism that sifts through the dirt and half-truths to explain the issues. We emphasize investigative stories and projects.\u00a0 The successful candidate will have excellent time management and organizational skills, including the ability to deliver on deadline and manage multiple priorities. You\u2019ll need a bachelor\u2019s degree and excellent verbal skills. Preference will be given to candidates with at least two years of government reporting experience. You will hit the ground running, covering major elections this fall and a full legislative session beginning in January. We take pride in being our state\u2019s largest and most important media voice. In January, we were named the best daily newspaper in Wyoming. Our reporters regularly take home awards at state and regional competitions.\u00a0 Outside the newsroom, Wyoming offers endless outdoor opportunities. We\u2019re at the base of a beautiful mountain range where you can hike in the summer and ski in the winter. Camping and world-class fishing are just a short drive out of town. Casper boasts a small-town feel with big city offerings of restaurants, shopping and the arts. And if you\u2019re missing the big city, Denver is an easy drive.\u00a0 The Casper Star-Tribune is a Lee Enterprises news organization.
