Looking to work with the top daily newspaper in Wyoming? The Sheridan Press needs an education/sports reporter to join its team.

The Sheridan Press allows its staff members to flex their journalistic muscles while having a blast with solid coworkers. 

The Sheridan Press publishes six days a week in print and online platforms, with a bountiful social media, online and community presence. The Sheridan Press prides itself in stability and forward-focused leadership. 

Family owned and operated, The Press encourages creative thinking and deep dives into hard news journalism. 

The position available is education and sports reporter. The beat reporter covers Sheridan College and three K-12 school districts in Sheridan County, along with localizing state and national education news. Additionally, the reporter will assist our full-time sports reporter with sports coverage during the school year, typically on weekends.
