    Posting on behalf of an email request:

    A daily newspaper with an award-winning sports team and one of the top designs in America is accepting applications from a designer/copy editor. If you like designing pages with flair, we want to talk to you. Headline writing and copyediting are part of the position as well. This is a great entry-level opportunity or one for a more experienced person looking to make a move upward. The WTE, a seven-day a.m. Sunday circulation of 16,500, underwent a radical redesign in 2008 that was named one of the top 5 redesigns in the world by SND. The sports section also has won several national awards from Associated Press Sports Editors (APSE), including the prestigious "Triple Crown" for 2010, placing in the top 10 in daily, Sunday and special section in the under-15,000 circulation category. Cheyenne, Wyo., is located at the northern tip of the Colorado Front Range. Our growing city is close to some of the best hunting, fishing, hiking, camping and other outdoor activity areas in the nation. We’re also only about a 90-minute drive from Denver and 45 minutes from Fort Collins, Colo. Starting pay is based on education and experience.

    Send a cover letter, resume and work samples to Robert Gagliardi, sports editor, Wyoming Tribune-Eagle, 702 W. Lincolnway, Cheyenne, WY 82001 or submit materials via e-mail at rgagliardi@wyosports.net and to jjohnke@wyosports.net.

    Second-largest paper in Wyoming. They share content with the Laramie paper, the Boomerang; they print both papers in Cheyenne. The paper has a good crew of writers who know the area and the scene pretty well. I can vouch for both gentlemen listed above as being good to work with/for. Cheyenne also tends to produce some decent athletes -- first-round MLB pick Brandon Nimmo the most recent. The design is big and bold and not for everyone, so be ready to embrace a different way of looking at layout. In all, thumbs up.

    Robert Gagliardi is top-notch, as has been testified to each time we see a job open here.

    Robert seemed like a great guy when I was brought out for an interview a few months ago. The paper has a huge building with about 200 total employees. They also just got a brand new press that they showed me so a designer would probably be able to do some fancy things and actually have it look good when printed.
