How to Save The Denver Post

  • The Denver Press Club 1330 Glenarm Place Denver, CO, 80204 United States (map)

News junkies in Colorado are embroiled in a fierce debate over how best to save The Denver Post from its vampiric owners – the hedge funders at Alden Global Capital.

Subscribe to The Post to support local news? Cancel your subscription to deny the owners greater profits? Advertise or don’t advertise? What is it going to take?

The Colorado Independent, The Colorado Media Alliance, and The Denver Press Club are bringing that debate to the club at 1330 Glenarm at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 15. The Indy’s Mike Littwin will be the moderator. Panelists include journalism heroes Chuck Plunkett andDave Krieger, and 9NEWS (KUSA)'s Kyle Clark, Denver Westword's Patty Calhoun, former Post managing editor Linda Shapley and Post reporter Danika Worthington.

Denver Post journos – both current and former – will be there, as well as Denver Mayor Michael Hancock and other politicos who are decrying what’s happening to The Post.

But the critical voices will come from you, the audience, because the only people who might force Alden to sell The Post are readers, advertisers, willing billionaires and, mostly, the talented people still at The Post who keep fighting the good fight.

The panel is free. Bring your ideas. Bring your voices. And if your throat needs soothing, drinks are available for purchase at the Press Club bar. Social hour starts at 5:30. Panel Start at 6:30. 

Be there because #newsmatters.
