In The Sheridan Press newsroom, curiosity is key, and we are looking for new reporters to join our team. If you want to work with an evolving and forward-thinking newsroom, this is the job for you.
Successful candidates will be curious and comfortable digging for truth, navigating local government, courts and asking tough questions of authority figures. The positions available are government and public safety reporters. The government reporter covers politics and government news across Sheridan County. The public safety reporter keeps an ear to the ground, reporting on courts, crime and other elements of public safety.
The willingness and ability to approach issues with outside-the-box thinking will be required as The Press continues pushing the boundaries of journalism outside of print media. A thorough understanding of AP style, attention to detail and strength in researching will also be required. Candidates should be able to work independently and have a strong understanding of what community journalism means.
The Press is an independent newspaper with family and local ownership and with print and online news delivery platforms. Sheridan County is a thriving community of 30,000 with a college, a lively arts/culture/music scene, a busy downtown and many other amenities, including unlimited outdoor recreational opportunities. Hours will vary.
