CENTENNIAL, Colo. November 5, 2018 – Two new regional reporters have joined the Colorado Public Radio News (CPR News) team in Grand Junction and Colorado Springs. The reporters are part of CPR’s vision to grow its newsroom by a third - a vision that was first announced last July. They represent the first time CPR has embedded reporters in communities outside the metro area, helping the newsroom expand the depth and accessibility of local news coverage and better connect communities across Colorado.
Dan Boyce joins CPR as the southern Colorado reporter and will be primarily covering major news developments in Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas, including the military and veterans issues. Boyce brings over a decade of reporting experience to CPR, including covering state government for Montana Public Radio and reporting for the Colorado public media collaborative Inside Energy and NPR’s Environment & Energy Collaborative. Boyce has been awarded several regional Murrow awards, a Heartland Emmy and other distinctions for his work.
Stina Sieg is CPR’s new western slope reporter, based in Grand Junction and responsible for covering issues impacting the western half of Colorado, including land use, agriculture and development. Sieg is a public radio veteran, having worked at both KJZZ in Phoenix and WNCW in North Carolina. Sieg gained western slope experience while reporting for the Glenwood Springs Post Independent newspaper for several years early in her career. She has earned a regional Murrow award, a National Headliner Award and other distinctions throughout her career.
“These additions enable the newsroom to produce significantly more news for and from Colorado, in a capacity not possible before,” said Kevin Dale, Executive Editor of CPR News. “As a result, Coloradans can expect to hear about the most important issues happening across the state, giving them a greater sense of place and connection with one another. We’re grateful for the sustained community support that enables us to invest in these positions and further enhance our service to the Colorado community.”
