Journalist Covering the University of Wyoming Needed at The Laramie Boomerang | Posted Mar. 16, 2017.

The Laramie Boomerang, a six-days-a-week publication, seeks a news-hungry reporter for our flagship beat: the University of Wyoming — the Cowboy State’s only four-year public university. This is a very a dynamic beat, and matters affecting UW shape the state of Wyoming as a whole.
Here’s what our outgoing reporter had to say about his experience covering UW:
“A reporter might spend some days on hard news matters such as budgets, construction or faculty, staff and student concerns. Other days, it might be writing features about new programming in campus departments or reporting a remarkable accomplishment by a student or faculty member. It’s a fun beat because it’s dynamic and keeps things interesting. A good UW reporter is never struggling to find stories.”
The ideal candidate should possess the ability to follow governmental meeting procedures and very strong news judgment. Wyoming is a sparsely populated state, and that means you will very often be the only reporter in the room. Being able to determine what should be the story for that day —  and what should be a follow-up, enterprise or feature piece — is crucial. But you won’t be doing it alone. A team of copyeditors and the managing editor will have your back, helping you produce must-read content for readers across Wyoming and the region.
The beat also includes some arts and entertainment and health care coverage.
A strong grasp of grammar and AP style is also required. Photo experience is preferred, but not necessary.
Pay ranges from $24,000-$28,000, depending on qualifications and experience. The Boomerang offers health, dental and vision insurance, 401K and other benefits.
To apply, email a cover letter, resume, three references and six to eight clips to Managing Editor Peter Baumann at Incomplete applications will not be considered.
About Laramie
As the third-largest city in the Equality State, Laramie bustles with concerts, farmers' markets, book readings, visiting lecturers — and that's just what's going on within city limits. Drive 20 minutes east, and you're in Vedauwoo, a lunar landscape with world-class hiking, biking, climbing and (when there's snow, which we get a lot of) Nordic skiing and snowshoeing. Drive 30 minutes west and you're in Centennial, home to a slew of restaurants and hotels which serve as a great jumping off point into the Snowy Range. Moose, elk, deer and even the occasional mountain lion are just some of the wildlife you can expect to see.
Perhaps you're wanting to experience a bigger city for the weekend? Denver is less than three hours south; Fort Collins, Colorado, is just one hour away on U.S. Highway 287.
