Event link

Who’s watching out for Denver? The journalism scene here is changing rapidly, and representatives from three independent, digital-only newsrooms will discuss trust, the local news ecosystem, and the challenges and responsibilities of startup journalism.

Ashley Dean, Assistant Editor, Denverite
Tina Griego Managing Editor, Colorado Independent
Larry Ryckman, Editor, Colorado Sun

The Colorado Independent is a statewide online news source operating in a time when spin is plentiful, but factual, fair and unflinching news in the public interest is all too rare. Our award-winning team of veteran investigative and explanatory reporters and news columnists aims to amplify the voices of Coloradans whose stories are unheard, shine light on the relationships between people, power and policy, and hold public officials to account. We strive to report the news with context, social conscience, and soul, and to give Coloradans the insight they need to promote conversation, understanding and progress in this square, swing state we call home.
