Denver Post to add Rocky Mountain News voices
Almost two months ago, Michael Roberts offered an all-star list of five Rocky Mountain News staffers that he suggested the Denver Post hire should the News shut down.
Now, with the News's last day tomorrow, the Post has announced that it's adding a handful of News employees, and three of them were on Roberts's list: columnist Mike Littwin, workhorse reporter Lynn Bartels, and sports writer Dave Krieger.
Among others, the Post is also picking up columnists Tina Griego and Bill Johnson; editorial-page writer Vince Carroll; Penny Parker, who'll be penning a business column; and reporter Kevin Vaughan.
