Meet the New Kids in Town

Join Colorado Press Women for a Zoom meeting Saturday, Jan. 23, at 10 a.m. with two editors of The Denver Gazette, a four-month-old daily digital newspaper.

Hear Vince Bzdek, editor, and Jim Bates, the news editor, discuss the addition of The Denver Gazette to Colorado’s media scene.

Owned by Colorado billionaire Phil Anschutz, who also owns The Gazette in Colorado Springs and Colorado Politics, The Denver Gazette launched in mid-September 2020. Visually, it looks like a paper on the viewing screen. And it has typical newspaper sections such as sports, business news, opinion, entertainment, local and national stories, and more. But it also incorporates video elements.

Bzdek has been an editor and reporter for The Washington Post, The Denver Post, the Colorado Springs Sun and his family-owned newspaper, The Brush News-Tribune. He’s the author of two books on national politics and has also written for The Wall Street Journal and Wired magazine, and appeared on C-SPAN, MSNBC and CBS.

Bates oversees day-to-day operations of The Denver Gazette. He worked for more than 30 years at The Denver Post in a number of jobs, including Executive News Editor, Deputy Managing Editor, Sunday Editor and Deputy National Editor. Before that he worked with Vince at the Colorado Springs Sun.

The Zoom link will be sent to all members. Nonmembers may register to join the program for $5 by clicking the link below.
