Q&A with Steve Zansberg | Defending Colorado’s right to know

Colorado Politics: Colorado doesn’t just have a friend in Steve Zansberg. They have a defender of the public’s right to know and the press’s ability to do its job. Toiling in a law library instead of a newsroom, the former TV journalist is a giant behind the scenes of just about every one of the state’s biggest First Amendment fights over the last 2½ decades.

If the public has a right to know, it’s usually Zansberg fighting hardest for that right. Though it’s his profession, he’s also known for his pro bono fights for reporters, news outlets and others who enjoy the freedom of information. He currently serves as president of the Colorado Freedom of Information Coalition, ensuring proposed changes to the law, access to public records and initiatives around transparency.
