    The Billings Gazette, Montana’s largest newspaper and the state’s premier provider of sports content, has a full-time opening for a reporter who has an eye for compelling features, thrives in a fast-paced environment and has the savvy to enhance readership of our expanding online content.

    A vast eastern and central Montana circulation area that extends from the Canadian border into northern Wyoming and western North Dakota is your canvas. We are the go-to sports section for an audience that follows more than 150 high schools, two small colleges, a short-season minor-league baseball team, an Indoor Football League team, world-class rodeo, and much more. Our two NCAA Division I programs, Montana and Montana State, and the athletes from four Indian reservations in our coverage area also spark great passion from our readers.

    Versatility, creativity and high energy are essential traits. You’ll join a remarkably experienced team of eight full-time staffers, which enables us to provide innovation and depth to our coverage. Billings is a rapidly growing city in the heart of some of America’s most picturesque country, a short drive from Yellowstone National Park, world-class trout fishing and other outdoor activities.

    The Gazette offers an excellent benefits package, including medical, dental, vision, paid holidays and vacation. We are an equal opportunity employer.

    Is this the same job that was posted here several weeks back or another opening?

    I can't imagine how many part-timers it would take to take prep calls/emails for 150+ high schools.

    I've seen the paper many times. They don't actually run results for all 150 schools. The paper is the largest in about a 500-mile radius, so that gives them plenty of space to go find good stories in rural areas. Hard to see which actually covers more schools, the Gazette or the Great Falls Tribune.

    Pretty much what I figured. I wonder how far out of Billings they actually go for regular game coverage.

    I've corresponded with this crew quite a bit throughout the years. They run a tight ship and there would be the opportunity to cover some outstanding small colleges (Frontier Conference). Also, Montana's prep scene is criminally underrated. While I don't know their sports editor, he has a great background and their ASE is a good dude who seems easy to work with. The Gazette is a good shop too. They cover basically the entire state of Montana when it comes down to it and even dip into Wyoming.
