    The Montana Standard, an 8,000 circulation daily in Butte – the nation’s largest single historic district -- is seeking a sports reporter to join a three-person staff dedicated to covering a region with a rich sports heritage. Our new hire also will collaborate with a team of 18 staffers statewide who are building an innovative and robust new sports website (406mtsports.com).

    We’re looking for someone who can unearth nuggets of compelling content for both a loyal print readership and an increasingly savvy digital audience in a hearty former mining city with a strong sports culture and a colorful personality. Two city high schools and the NAIA’s Montana Tech anchor our coverage, but our reach includes Montana Western College plus numerous small towns where sports are king. In addition, Silver Bow County is flush with people who are active year-round.

    Duties include feature/game coverage, plus typically two page-trafficking shifts each week. We emphasize content that will be well read not only in the Butte area but all of Montana. Periodic coverage of events of statewide importance for 406mtsports.com and papers in Billings, Missoula and Helena also comes with the job. Social and digital media skills are essential, and the ability to take photos/video is a big plus.

    Once one of the most raucous mining towns in America, Butte is reinventing itself as one of the region’s most livable communities. It is a hard-working city that also serves as a tourist destination for people who appreciate history and the wealth of outdoor activities in the surrounding mountains.

    The Standard is an equal opportunity employer with an excellent benefits package that includes medical, dental, vision, paid holidays and vacation. Salary depends on experience. Visit our websites at www.mtstandard.com and www.406mtsports.com to see our work.
