    Wyoming’s leading newspaper needs a crackerjack sports journalist to extend and enhance our tradition of ambitious excellence. In Wyoming, a state with only half a million people, our 30,000-circulation daily is the state’s biggest media voice. Our readers demand heads-up daily coverage plus metro-quality enterprise journalism. We deliver, with content that has won us the Wyoming Press Association’s general excellence award for the past two years. Our sports section has been honored with multiple APSE awards in recent years, plus a prestigious “President’s Award” from our parent company. Our previous sports editor has just taken over our city desk. Now our talented young sports staff needs a dynamic leader who shares our dedication to enterprise stories, reader-friendly presentation and online innovation. The ideal candidate could be an experienced newsroom leader or a first-time editor looking for a chance to show your ability. The Casper Star-Tribune aggressively covers the University of Wyoming, the minor league Casper Ghosts, the Wyoming Cavalry indoor football team, the annual College National Finals Rodeo, and high schools from corner to corner of the Cowboy state. We offer a strong package of pay and benefits, including medical, dental, vision, 401(k) and stock purchase plan. You'll live in a safe, friendly community, surrounded by Wyoming's outdoor splendor and incredible recreation opportunities. We're about a four-hour drive north of Denver. See our Web site at www.trib.com. Learn about our parent company at www.lee.net. We are an equal opportunity employer. Apply at www.trib.com or at www.apply-to.com/Job3243347. Then send your resume, reference list and work samples to: Clark Walworth, Editor, The Casper Star-Tribune, P.O. Box 80, Casper, WY 82602. Application deadline is January 6, 2008.


    PM me if you need details.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but this might be one of the better 30k shops in the country, certainly one of the better known.
    A lot of extremely talented youngsters have gone through this place, and a few that I know (one personally) now have pretty good jobs at bigger papers.
    That, to me, says they are doing something obviously right -- even if Wyoming isn't the epicenter of the social world.

    Former sports editor Ron Gullberg built this section into one of the nation's best before taking off for Salt Lake City. He'd hire guys with no experience to speak of (who else would go to Casper?) and turn them into award-winning journalists. Believe Ron is back at the Star-Tribune, doing something with their Web page.

    Ron is back. He is the online director. He also does a live blog from UW football games for youW.trib.com

    If CNHI papers can brag that they're CNHI papers, then surely a Lee paper can toot its own horn.
