The Denver Gazette To Debut As Interactive Newspaper

Clarity Media Group is debuting a daily, subscription-based news site called The Denver Gazette.

Billing itself as an “interactive newspaper,” the site will begin publishing on September 14, reports Mediapost.

The Denver Gazette has 50+ staffers and contributors and will publish news, investigative journalism and local opinion pieces.

The publication will be led by publisher Chris Reen, editor Vince Bzdek, news editor Jim Bates and digital editor Chuck Hickey.

"We've long considered publishing a Denver newspaper," stated Ryan McKibben, president and CEO of Clarity Media Group, a Denver-based media company that also owns Colorado Springs Gazette, Colorado Politics, Out There Colorado and The Washington Examiner.

"The timing and market dynamics aligned, making this the ideal time to launch a next-generation newspaper that will satisfy a growing demand for trustworthy, locally-owned journalism,” he continued.

Readers can register on The Denver Gazette site to get free access for three months. After the free trial, the publisher is offering an introductory subscription rate of $9.99 per month or $99 per year.

Readers will be able to adjust text size and listen to audio versions of articles. The Denver Gazette will also have a dedicated app.

In May, McClatchy launched a local news site in Longmont, Colorado. Called The Longmont Leader, the site is funded by Google News Initiative’s Local Experiments Project, which supports McClatchy’s Compass Experiment, aimed at exploring sustainable business models for local publishers.
