    The Casper Star-Tribune is seeking a talented sports reporter with high expectations, organizational skills and competitive drive to contribute to our award-winning sports staff.

    Duties will primarily focus on high school sports but will also include some general sports assignments in Casper and around the state with opportunities to contribute to our coverage of University of Wyoming athletics. Casper plays host to the week-long College National Finals Rodeo, along with summer collegiate baseball and junior hockey teams.

    Enterprise and online reporting are a must here, so evidence of investigative, storytelling and multimedia skills will put you ahead of the field. We’re looking for someone who isn’t afraid of controversy, writes for our audience, engages with readers and promotes their work through multiple social media channels. Other duties will include maintaining our online standings and occasionally helping manage page flow of the next day’s newspaper at night.

    The successful candidate will also have excellent time management and organizational skills, including the ability to accurately gauge project duration, deliver on tight deadlines and manage a workload with possible conflicting priorities. Requirements include a bachelor’s degree, excellent verbal skills, a willingness to continually improve as a writer and a strong attention to detail.

    Our newsroom is hard-working but fun, and we take pride in being the prominent media voice in the Cowboy State and the only newspaper that covers every high school sports team in Wyoming. Our sports section has a long history of consistently winning APSE awards, including six honors in 2014. We were named a Top 10 section for the Under 30,000 circulation category in Daily Section and Special Section, along with an honorable mention for Sunday Section.

    The Star-Tribune, with a circulation of about 17,000, was named Wyoming’s best daily newspaper this past year. You’ll live and play among Wyoming’s outdoor splendor – Casper’s central location (we’re about a four-hour drive north of Denver) offers a wide range of non-work activities.

    Experienced journalists are preferred for this position, but new journalists are welcome to apply.

    We offer an excellent benefits package, including medical, dental, vision, paid holidays and vacation. We are an equal opportunity employer. You can see our Web site at Casper Star-Tribune - trib.com - Wyoming News and learn more about our parent company at Lee Enterprises
