Channel 4 lost its longtime affiliation with a daily newspaper when the Rocky Mountain News folded in late February -- and the station is apparently trying to make up for its absence with volume. Even before the Rocky's closure, Channel 4 cemented a new relationship with the Denver Business Journal, which was identified as the CBS outlet's "partner" during last night's late newscast. And now, the DBJ has company. The station has just announced that it's also climbing into the sack with Denver Magazine, a relatively new glossy that's attempting to break 5280's stranglehold on the market. Channel 4 entertainment reporter/critic Greg Moody will write a column for the mag, while the station is scheduled to preview upcoming issues in regular segments.

CBS4 AND DENVER MAGAZINE TEAM UP
Denver-- CBS4--KCNC-TV and Denver Magazine announced today that the two media organizations have teamed-up to offer in-depth coverage of local entertainment stories and charitable events.
"We are pleased to announce a partnership between CBS4 and Denver Magazine," CBS4 News Director Tim Wieland said. "Many of the entertainment stories and local events our anchors and reporters cover on television and emcee are events Denver Magazine covers from a print perspective. Beginning with the April issue, we've teamed up to bring our viewers and Denver Magazine readers more of what they want to see and read."
Denver Magazine readers will see a column by CBS4 critic at large Greg Moody on how to have fun and beat the recession by taking advantage of local entertainment deals. CBS4 viewers will see a segment the last Friday of each month in the morning news with Gloria Neal and the evening news with Greg Moody that gives viewers a sneak peek of one of the stories in the new issue of Denver Magazine.
Michael Ledwitz, Denver Magazine's Publisher & CEO, is excited about the working relationship with CBS4. "It allows us to showcase our print content to viewers and further dimensionalize their on-air personalities through another medium. CBS4 was a natural fit based on their longstanding reputation in our community," Ledwitz said.
Denver Magazine's April issue focuses on health and beauty in the Mile High City, from locally made beauty products to the hottest trends in cosmetic surgery. April also marks 10 years from the occurrence of the tragedies at Columbine High School, and the magazine talks in-depth with principal Frank DeAngelis and gains perspective from several of the survivors.
