Our Team

Susan Greene

Susan Greene has 22 years of journalism experience, mostly at dailies. She worked for 13 years for The Denver Post as a City Hall reporter, national reporter, political reporter and metro columnist.

“Trashing the Truth,” a series she reported with Miles Moffeit about the loss and destruction of DNA evidence, helped exonerate three men, prompted federal and state reforms on evidence preservation and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in investigative journalism. Greene’s 2012 long-form article and video documentary, The Gray Box, exposed the effects of long-term solitary confinement. She’s currently working to preserve and revitalize the Independent as a vital source of political and investigative journalism in Colorado.
