CPR News

The office building at 303 E. 17th Ave. in Denver will be the new home of CPR News.

Colorado Public Radio's news operation and studios will relocate to a downtown Denver office building from their current home in suburban Centennial, the public-radio outlet announced Thursday.

CPR News said it will move some 50 reporters, editors, producers and digital news staff from the Bridges Broadcast Center in Centennial to a 9,000-square-foot space at 303 E. 17th Ave., in the North Capitol Hill area.

They will be joined by journalists  from the digital news outlet Denverite, which CPR announced last month it is acquiring.

CPR's two music channels and their employees  CPR Classical and OpenAir  will remain based in Centennial.

The move will occur later this year; the new space is being designed.

CPR News has been adding staff recently in an initiative to expand coverage around Colorado.

“As we add resources and journalistic talent, it’s critical to maintain the same open, collaborative newsroom we’ve had at Bridges Broadcast Center,” said CPR News Executive Editor Kevin Dale in Thursday's announcement.

“We’ve outgrown that space with plans for continued growth," Dale added. "Moving downtown is a desirable option to add space, while also reducing operational challenges we face being a half-hour away from the state’s largest news hub.”
