September 21, 2023

Posted by Mariam Ahmed

Cowboy State Daily, Wyoming’s largest news organization, is expanding again.

We’re looking for two general assignment reporters to cover different areas of the state.

The successful candidates will be experienced writers who can turn around clean copy in real time. You work well under pressure and love the idea of finding the news. If you like to travel, this job is for you.

You will be paid well with excellent benefits and an enviable bonus package.

We’re a bunch of talented, experienced journalists who thought Wyoming was being underserved, and we knew we could do it better. We’re passionate about telling Wyoming’s stories and have a blast doing it.

A local businessperson bought our organization 18 months ago, and our readership has soared. We’re the most-read news organization in the state and continue to grow.

We will never be acquired by a hedge fund. We will never be part of a chain.

You will:

  • Stay on top of the news in your geographic region; know how to sniff it out
  • Develop trustworthy sources in your area
  • Produce consistent, high-quality copy and know how to meet deadlines
  • Work with others. We have reporters all over the state, and we all help each other out
  • Come to daily budget meetings loaded with story ideas
  • Take photos and video, on occasion


  • Bachelor’s degree
  • 2+ years of journalism experience
  • Outgoing, great communicator
  • Ability to work independently
  • Must possess excellent writing skills and knowledge of AP style
  • A keen sense of humor (or at least try)

To apply, send cover letter, resume, salary history and your three best clips to
