DescriptionWith layoffs at the Denver Post and the closing of the Rocky Mountain News in 2009 few places have lost as much reporting talent in recent years as the Mile High City. Ann Imse a former reporter for the Rocky who had previously worked as a correspondent for the Associated Press during the collapse of the Soviet Union saw the writing on the wall earlier than some. “At least five years ago a number of journalists started talking about the fact that we were likely to lose one of our newspapers in Denver if not both” she explains. From this discussion came the seeds of what would become Colorado Public News the site which Imse serves as editor-in-chief.
