    Wyoming's leading newspaper is looking for a versatile, motivated sports journalist to complete a talented staff.

    Few newspapers our size offer the growth opportunities you'll find at the Casper Star-Tribune. Our past hires are reaching their goals at larger papers in Denver, Illinois, North Carolina, Kansas and, most recently, Tennessee and Los Angeles. And still others have moved up to managerial positions.

    You will have two primary responsibilities here – paginating an award-winning section and managing our growing online sports products. We envision this person begin versatile enough to write breaking news as needed and organized enough to manage long-term projects. We’re looking for someone who works and wants to be the best.

    Our statewide circulation of just under 30,000 makes us the most prominent media voice in the Cowboy State. Our sports section and staff members have won 33 APSE awards since 1995, including three in 2009. The addition to our staff will help us build on that excellence.

    Photoshop and Quark or InDesign experience is required; HTML experience will set you apart from other candidates. You'll need a bachelor's degree, excellent verbal skills, a willingness to continually improve as page designer and online reporter, and strong attention to detail. Meanwhile, you'll live and play amid Wyoming's outdoor splendor. We're about a four-hour drive north of Denver.

    We offer an excellent benefits package, including medical, dental, vision, 401(k) retirement, paid holidays and vacation. We are an equal opportunity employer. You can see our web site at www.trib.com. Learn about our parent company at www.lee.net.

    I talked to Dave a few years back about a job and would apply again if I were looking. They are part of the chain where I am currently working.

    Granted, Casper is a little remote geographically (3 hours to the University in Laramie, 4 or more to Denver depending on the weather). Circulation numbers are a little inflated because it's state wide, so doesn't reflect the size of Casper itself. But it's a good paper that balances preps, colleges, outdoors and national stuff. Does a pretty good job when it comes to design. Not a bad place for someone looking to show what they can do.

    Not yet, Stitch. We're still gathering materials from some applicants and seeing if there are a few more interested in the position.

    We've had a short-notice change of plans ...

    We'll have an opening but not for this position. New thread will be posted shortly.
