Colorado Public Radio: Colorado Public Radio is acquiring Denverite, a local news organization started in 2016, from Spirited Media. The site’s journalists will join the growing CPR News staff, though they will continue to focus on Denverite’s strategy of covering Denver for those who live there.
“In a few short years, Denverite has built a passionate audience with a staff of Denver journalists who understand the issues important to residents,” said Kevin Dale, executive editor of CPR News. “We are eager to help that live, and for our two staffs – more than 40 full-time journalists – to work together to provide even stronger coverage online of Colorado’s largest city and to serve CPR’s statewide radio and digital audience.”
Stewart Vanderwilt, CPR’s president and CEO, said Denverite will benefit from the larger organization’s business operations.
“We’re thrilled to have Denverite join the CPR family where it will get the enhanced reach and infrastructure of the CPR network, while still retaining the unique voice and focus its audience knows and loves,” he said in a news release announcing the acquisition.
