James Hoyt helps uphold The Park Record’s editorial standards as its copy editor. Alongside editing, he reports, photographs, shoots video and otherwise fills in wherever needed.

Prior to moving to Park City to work at the paper in September 2017, James had never skied, visited the Rockies or seen a moose. He still hasn’t seen a moose, but he has taken to the natural beauty of the Wasatch and generously donates his ski gear to passers-by on Utah’s blue runs.

A native of the plains near Haviland, Kansas, James graduated with a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Kansas in 2017. He previously interned as a reporter for the Student Press Law Center in Washington, D.C. In his spare time, he can be found striving to raise his competitive rank in Overwatch and finding ways to get his cat, Vice President Selina Meyer, to stop yelling at him.

UPDATE: On Oct. 13, 2019, James saw his first, second, third and fourth moose while hiking in Big Cottonwood Canyon.
