TELLING STORIES THAT MATTER FOR A DYNAMIC, EVOLVING STATE

Local news is in crisis. As hedge funds and billionaires are too often calling the shots, there is a new opportunity for fact-based local news to thrive.

Here comes The Colorado Sun.

The Colorado Sun is a community-supported, journalist-owned team focused on investigative, explanatory and narrative journalism for a state in the midst of a massive evolution. Our goal is to inform readers from the Western Slope to the Eastern Plains by shining light on the news that matters.

THE COLORADO SUN RUNS ON CIVIL

We were fortunate to find partners interested in creating a new model for local journalism. Civil is getting us started with some financial and technical backing, but the news will be sourced, reported, edited and published right here in Colorado. To learn more about Civil’s public-interest model and see more of the independent newsrooms launching in Civil’s First Fleet, visit joincivil.com. By ditching the intrusive ads that clutter most news sites, The Colorado Sun will rely on local supporters and subscribers who want to understand and appreciate what’s happening in Colorado. We’re lean and mean, so every subscription or donation dollar we get will be going directly into the resources, records requests and other expenses needed to tell Colorado’s stories with thoroughness and style. We hope you’ll come along for this ride, and that you’ll be an active participant in -- and hopefully a financial supporter of -- the vibrant conversations to come. Remember our name: The Colorado Sun. We’re rising.
