Here’s a snapshot I took this week of the I-News newsroom.
There’s such a buzz in the newsroom these days. You can see the two newest members of our staff, reporter-extraordinaire Kevin Vaughan in the back and editor-with-the-magic-touch Jim Trotter in the foreground.
Jim is working with reporter Ann Carnahan Espinola, who has teamed up with Burt Hubbard (you can see him working away on his computer). They’re in the middle of a major project looking at how Colorado compares to the rest of the nation when it comes to matters of race and things like income, education and health – and what that means to the future of the state. Stay tuned for more on this project soon.
In between Burt and Kevin is multimedia director Joe Mahoney. You can’t see his desktop, but it’s full of Mac screens, which are full of video clips, photos, and website work. He’s full of talent.
Joe might cringe at my photo-taking skill, but I couldn’t help myself. I wanted to just capture that moment. After all the lamenting in recent years about the loss of in-depth, public service journalism, it struck me (right before snapping this picture) how vibrantly I-News is helping reverse that trend.
Thank you for your support. And you’re welcome to come visit our newsroom any time!
