    "This job is not for the faint of heart"

    Looking for a reporter proficient in writing and photography who’s eager for new experiences and passionate about the outdoors.

    Our small newsroom produces two award-winning weekly newspapers here, each with its own unique identity, which provides for a wide range of story opportunities for an enterprising reporter, including schools, sports, outdoors and feature writing.

    We’re based in Pinedale, Wyo., a small town of about 3,000 nestled at 7,200 feet in the foothills of the Wind River Range – home to the highest peaks in the state and a ski resort 10 miles outside of town. It is located an hour from Jackson Hole and the Tetons – the gateway to Yellowstone.

    Sublette County, itself, has been described as “the last preserve of cowboy culture,” and it truly is, with Pinedale recently named, yet again, as one of True West magazine’s “Top 10 True Western Towns.” But more than that, this place is home to some of the most beautiful geography in the country. It’s truly an outdoor paradise, with every activity imaginable – and some beyond imagination (ever been to a spring branding?).

    The county is also home to the highest concentration of natural gas development in the lower 48 and 80 percent of the county is managed by federal agencies, including the BLM and U.S. Forest Service. This means we’re tackling national issues on a regular basis from hydraulic fracking and EPA policy to sage grouse and all things wolves and grizzly bears, just to name a few. These are national issues often found in the pages of the New York Times and we’re at the frontlines.

    Applicants should be highly motivated, organized and team players. Our schedule is flexible to accommodate the time required to cover the wide array of stories and events in the area. That said, night and weekend work is part of the equation.

    Wyoming Newspapers Inc. offers competitive pay, health insurance, mileage reimbursement and a 401(k) plan after a year. MUST have reliable transportation. And the ideal applicant will have at least one to two years experience as a reporter/photographer, but we are willing to train recent journalism school graduates.

    Pay based on experience.

    To be considered, please submit a cover letter, resume and 5 to 7 published clips to editor@pinedaleroundup.com.
