“Over the years we’ve hired some of the finest young journalists in the country and have brought them to Wyoming,” says WPM News Director, Bob Beck.  “ I look for intelligent people who have strong story telling skills, who are balanced in their reporting.  Many of our reporters have moved from here and are succeeding in much larger markets.”
