Enlightening Thoughts on Local News from Co-Founder of The Colorado Sun

Introduction by Jim Clarke, Associated Press

Speaker Bio: Dana Coffield is Senior Editor and co-founder of The Colorado Sun.

She is a Colorado native who became a journalist to try and satiate an endless appetite for knowledge. On the quest, she has worked as an editor and reporter at a variety of publications along the Front Range ranging in size from the Rocky Mountain News to the Louisville Times.

Most recently she was Senior Editor for News at The Denver Post, where she directed coverage of the Aurora theater shooting that led to the Post’s 2013 Pulitzer Prize for breaking news. Sadly, it was her second shared Pulitzer for a gun massacre. Coffield also did stints at The Associated Press and a couple of trade publications, where she developed a keen understanding of telecommunications infrastructure and organic food.

She lives in Lafayette with her husband, a bee hive, four chickens and a mildly intelligent cocker spaniel.
