Media gabfest offered insights in to how some of Colorado’s leading mainstreamers think about the news

Earlier today, a handful of journalists got together downtown to discuss, what else, journalism.

Sponsored by Rocky Mountain Media Watch and the University of Colorado at Denver’s School of Public Affairs, it was a riveting if sometimes predictable discussion.

The panel included Channel 9’s Adam Schrager, Fox 31’s Eli Stokels, The Denver Post’s Curtis Hubbard and others. It was moderated by Jason Salzman.

Ernest Luning blogged it live for Colorado Pols. Few people (none of them journalists) can write as fast as people can talk, but Luning did an amazing job. We’d give you our account, but since they talked about us, we’re a little biased.

Here’s how Luning saw it.

Scot Kersgaard has been managing editor of a political newspaper, editor and co-owner of a ski town newspaper, executive editor of eight high-tech magazines (where he worked with current Apple CEO Tim Cook), deputy press secretary to a U.S. Senator, and an outdoors columnist at the Rocky Mountain News. He has an English degree from the University of Washington. He was awarded a fellowship to study internet journalism at the University of Maryland's Knight Center for Specialized Journalism. He was student body president in college. He spends his free time hiking and skiing.
