About Us

Explore Big Sky is Big Sky’s trusted media source. Since its first print newspaper—then called the Big Sky Weekly—hit stands in 2010 under Outlaw Partners’ local ownership, EBS has evolved with the growing community it serves, bringing quality, fair and accurate news to its audience through timely digital delivery as well as a bimonthly print paper.

We understand the importance of local journalism. Our award-winning coverage seeks to inform the longtime local as well as the first-time visitor, and we pride ourselves in objective reporting and in providing accurate and timely information and analysis.

EBS, published by Outlaw Partners, is as much community anchor as it is newspaper. Through its Town Hall interview series, daily Town Crier newsletter, social media and print and website presence, EBS delivers community voices, issues and updates on southwest Montana straight from the heart of Big Sky.

Explore Big Sky Staff

Jack Reaney, Big Sky Staff Writer

Jack joined the Editorial staff in September 2022, with a passion for reporting, writing, multimedia storytelling, and building a strong community.

He spent five years studying Economics and Creative Writing at Denison University in Ohio, taking a gap year during 2020/21 to avoid Senior year on Zoom and opting instead to work Trail Safety in Telluride, Colorado. He fondly remembers being paid to take powder laps while looking for over-terrained skiers on the shady steeps of Lift 9. Jack dove into journalism during his Senior year, and he found Outlaw to be an exciting opportunity to start his writing career.


Jen Clancey, Digital Producer

Jen is from New Jersey and joined Outlaw Partners in June 2023. She attended Denison University in Ohio and studied psychology and narrative journalism. During many of her summers she worked as a farmhand, picking produce in the early hours of the morning, which made her lean toward telling agricultural stories through coursework and journalism. During her time at Denison, Jen developed her skills as a journalist in a nonprofit newsroom called The Reporting Project, where she covered local news, veterans, and developments in Central Ohio.

Jen’s work has appeared in The Newark Advocate and The Columbus Dispatch. Multimedia coursework helped her hone skills in visual and audio storytelling. She values community journalism for its ability to inform a town about itself and is excited to do just that at Explore Big Sky.
