Denver Post loses 393 years of experience in buyout
The final tally is in: 19 Denver Post employees are taking the buyout deal management offered last month.
The list includes star political reporter Lynn Bartels, society editor Joanne Davidson, theater and film critic Lisa Kennedy and veteran reporters Anthony Cotton, Claire Martin and Mark Jaffe. Presentation/design managing editor Damon Cain’s position was also eliminated, Post editor Greg Moore told Westword.
To illustrate what a loss this is for The Denver Post, here’s a list of the departing journalists and their years at the paper:
Tom Trout — 42 years, 2 months
Claire Martin — 31 years, 9 months
Lori Smith — 30 years, 8 months
Maureen Scance — 29 years, 11 months
Joanne Davidson — 29 years, 8 months
Steve Raabe — 29 years (almost to the day)
Allen Daniel — 27 years, 2 months
Vickie Heath — 26 years, 10 months
Tom Kensler — 25 years, 10 months
Electa Draper — 17 years, 4 months
Bryan Moore — 16 years, 6 months
Anthony Cotton — 14 years, 6 months
Susan Clotfelter — 13 years, 9 months
Jeff Domingues — 13 years, 8 months
Lisa Kennedy — 12 years, 3 months
Tara Lutzens — 10 years, 11 months
Mark Jaffe — 10 years, 2 months
Lynn Bartels — 6 years, 5 months
Dean Krakel — 4 years, 6 months
That’s 393 years of experience at The Post down the drain.
Tuesday, former photo editor Dean Krakel set out to hike the 566-mile Colorado Trail after spending his final days at the paper documenting his preparation for the trip. So, at least his post-Post life sounds pretty good.
