Denver Post CEO Mac Tully on new paywall, taking over from Dean Singleton

We recently spoke with Dean Singleton about his decision to retire as MediaNews Group chairman and Denver Post publisher next month. Regarding the latter, Singleton said, "It's Mac's newspaper now."

Mac is Post CEO Mac Tully, Singleton's successor as publisher -- and the man charged with overseeing a just-announced metered paywall that will end unfettered free online access to the paper. This week, we chatted with Tully about the paywall and succeeding Singleton. Here's what he had to say.
