The Billings Gazette is seeking a city/county reporter. We're in the largest metro area in Montana and have the region's largest newsroom, with a mix of smart young reporters and veterans.

Our newspaper has been named the best in the state six years in a row. We coordinate our coverage with four affiliated newspapers statewide and a four-person capital bureau, which allows our reporters time to dig deep.

But, being the best isn't all we have to offer. Billings is a growing city with a vibrant, walkable downtown featuring fine dining, performing arts centers, live music venues, art galleries, and more than our share of craft brew pubs. And, we have an international airport you could literally walk to (although a $15 Uber ride would be less sweaty.) If playing outdoors is your thing, we've also got mountains, rivers, dog parks, fly fishing, hunting, cycling, hiking and skiing.

This is a full-time, Monday-through-Friday, guild position with a minimum wage of $42K, and more with experience. We offer an excellent benefits package, including medical, dental, vision, paid holidays and a generous time off policy. We are an equal opportunity employer. You can see our Web site at www.billingsgazette.com and learn more about our company at www.lee.net

Please apply online at billingsgazette.com/workhere. Be sure to include a cover letter, resume, links to clip (or clips) and three references.
