About Us

Our Mission
The Colorado Sun is a journalist-owned, ad-free news outlet based in Denver but which strives to cover all of Colorado so that our state our community can better understand itself.

In this way, we believe we can contribute to a more vibrant, informed and whole Colorado.

We are committed to fact-based, in-depth journalism.

Our goal is not to turn a profit. Our goal is to produce the best possible journalism.


Who We Are
The Colorado Sun is made up of 10 staff writers and editors. They are:

Larry Ryckman, Editor larry@coloradosun.com

Dana Coffield, Senior Editor dana@coloradosun.com

Eric Lubbers, Technology & Strategy eric@coloradosun.com

Jason Blevins, Outdoors/Business Writer jason@coloradosun.com

Tamara Chuang, Business/Technology Writer tamara@coloradosun.com

Jennifer Brown, Government/Human Services Writer jennifer@coloradosun.com

John Ingold, Health/Criminal Justice Writer johningold@coloradosun.com

Kevin Simpson, Colorado Lifestyle/General Assignment Writer kevin@coloradosun.com

John Frank, Politics/Beer Writer johnfrank@coloradosun.com

Jesse Paul, Politics/General Assignment Writer jesse@coloradosun.com

The Sun also employs several contributing writers and photographers.

To otherwise get in touch with The Sun, you can reach us by email at newsroom@coloradosun.com or tips@coloradosun.com.

You can also contact us via Signal, WhatsApp or voicemail: (720) 669-3663.


How We Are Funded
We were fortunate to find partners interested in creating a new model for local journalism. Civil is getting The Colorado Sun started with some financial and technical backing now, but the news will be sourced, reported, edited and published right here in Colorado.

In the long term, we will rely on member support and sponsorships to sustain The Colorado Sun. More on how we accept sponsorships and our transparency rules can be found in our ethics policy.

Every dollar we receive goes directly toward the journalism we produce. Period.

To become a sponsor, email larry@coloradosun.com.
