Sean Keeler joined The Denver Post this week to cover college and professional sports for us, focusing on larger take-out stories. He joins us from LandOf10.com in Des Moines, Iowa, where he was a columnist covering the Big 10. We thought it would be good to spend today’s Denver Sports Omelette helping you get to know Sean as he finds his footing in Denver, which has few more elevation gains scattered around town than anywhere in the Hawkeye State. Matt Stephens: What piqued your interest in covering the Denver sports scene? Sean Keeler: The teams, first off. The Rockies are (allegedly) full of all kinds of characters, besides being one of the sneaky good franchises in a sneaky good N.L. West. The Broncos are compelling when they’re competitive and downright fascinating when they’re not. The Nuggets and Avs are trotting out maybe the best under-the-radar young rosters in the NBA and NHL, respectively. As a National Parks junkie, the area has always been on mine and my … [Read more...] about Denver Sports Omelette: Meet Sean Keeler, The Denver Post’s new sports reporter
Mike Lempko is giving new meaning to the phrase “light on your feet” this summer. A former Denver Post employee, Lempko quit his job in the newspaper’s advertising department in March to pursue his latest endeavor: in-line skating across the country. As a lifelong hockey player, in-line skating came naturally to the 26-year-old as he commuted to and from work in Chicago and later to the Post’s former downtown office. <>Mike Lempko, left is packing at the house of his childhood friend Erin Daetsch, right, in Denver on July 12. Along the way, Lempko is raising money for No Kid Hungry, a national campaign run by Share our Strength. (Hyoung Chang, The Denver Post) Lempko began in-line skating seriously six years ago. He started off in-line skating from Denver to Boulder and back, and gradually increased his round-trips to Idaho Springs, and Georgetown. After several trips of over 75 miles, Lempko decided to commit to skating across the country. He quit his … [Read more...] about Former Denver Post employee roller skates across country to raise money for kids’ charity

0 View Gallery View Comments DENVER — Three top figures at The Denver Post, including its former owner, resigned Friday amid budget and staff cuts made by the newspaper's New York-based hedge fund owners. Several Post reporters tweeted that Dean Singleton had stepped down as chairman and from his position on the editorial board. He owned the newspaper from 1987 until 2013 and saw it through tough economic times and an intense rivalry with the Rocky Mountain News.

Senior editors Dana Coffield and Larry Ryckman also resigned Friday. "I'm sad to leave, but it was time to go. I will be rooting for those still fighting the good fight," Ryckman tweeted. The Post published an editorial on April 6 headlined "As vultures circle, The Denver Post must be saved," calling on Alden Global Capital … [Read more...] about 3 top figures at Denver Post, including former owner, quit
