Wyoming newspapers have been the purveyor of information for over 150 years and an integral part to the daily lives of citizens across the state.
When Wyoming was still just a territory, our newspapers were living up to the state’s code and tradition for doing what needed to be done, taking pride in our work, and being tough but fair. The role of newspapers in Wyoming has been and continues to be essential in providing our communities with real news in print or online, and we pride ourselves on delivering the information that keeps you better informed, entertained and inspired.
Want to learn about what happened at the UW Poke’s game, read about the upcoming Mountain West Conference matchups, or see the scores for the local high school teams? Our reporters and photographers cover the action and deliver the results you want to know about so you’re up to date on all the details of your favorite sports teams.
Need to know about the county fair events, when the farmer’s market is starting, what’s happening downtown this weekend or about the upcoming festivals? Maybe you’re interested in which trails are open for hiking and ATV adventures or getting tips from local outfitters for hunting season. Our journalists cover the beautiful places we live and the activities that improve our quality of life.
Wyomingites overwhelmingly support and value open and transparent government and are interested in what’s going on with the state legislature, township meetings and school boards. Wyoming newspapers are watchdogs that safeguard transparency and democracy in our state by providing you with the facts to form your own opinions.
Local news starts with us. National Newspaper week is October 7th – 12th and the Wyoming Press Association recognizes and celebrates the outstanding work of our local journalists, photographers, editors and all staff members of Wyoming’s newspapers. They are the foundation of real news in our state.
