With COVID pretty much in our rear view mirror, now is a time to be optimistic and look ahead. Cowboy State Daily has never been more popular and with that in mind, we invite you to donate to us for our Spring 2021 donation drive.
During tough times like we saw in 2020, it helps to have someone to turn to. In the past year, Wyomingites turned to Cowboy State Daily in record numbers.
We anticipated your questions and we provided the answers. You asked us about COVID-19, hospital capacities, school issues, government tax proposals, remote learning, the failing economy and yes, elections, too.
Our staff answered these questions with nearly 2,000 stories, photos, videos, and by providing a daily newsletter to thousands of readers. That journalism helped thousands of people better understand how our state’s policies would impact their lives.
To top it off, the Wyoming Legislature just finished its session and we feel nobody covered the issues better than Cowboy State Daily.
Thanks for helping us continue our mission of keeping Wyomingites informed. In a year when information literally saved lives, we came through, thanks in no small part to your loyalty, which means so much.
Cowboy State Daily is owned by YOU. And with ownership comes responsibility.
We are reaching out to our 13,000-plus subscribers and asking you to make a tax-deductible donation.
We love it when people tell us how much they like Cowboy State Daily. Here are some examples:
Joe Glode in Saratoga says: “I sure like your daily news feed. It sure beats Cable!”
Judy S. in Buffalo says: “I sure enjoy the Cowboy State Daily. I look forward to it every day.”
Dan T. of Centennial says: “Your updates on the Mullen Fire last spring have been particularly important since I was one of the people who got evacuation notices. Thank God for the snow. Keep up the good work and I plan to donate annually.”
Mary Paxson made a nice donation and said: “I love the Cowboy State Daily. I love the writing especially. I think you are the last stand of journalism in Wyoming! I do enjoy the news along with the humor of the delivery.”
Janice S. of Jackson heaped a bunch of praise on Cowboy State Daily. Part of what she said was: “I have enjoyed the daily briefings of happenings around the state, which helps me feel more connected with the goings-on in Wyoming. I am a Wyoming local and have lived in several Wyoming towns. I also enjoy the bit of humor and lightheartedness that each report bring – the daily bears and the daily dancing men. Thank you for the tasteful humor which adds a chuckle to my morning and thank you for providing updates on news around our beautiful state and the people of Wyoming. I‘ve recommended that friends and family sign up to receive the Cowboy State Daily!”
These are just some of the many wonderful comments and notes we have received.
Cowboy State Daily continues to grow. We have been adding 1,000 new subscribers per month for the past year. That pace is actually increasing this year.
Our motto: Don’t Just Watch Us Grow – Join Us!”
