Denver Post sports editor says good writing matters in digital age

Combining short, concise phrases with long, intricate sentences, I listened closely to Scott Monserud during our phone interview. Monserud has been the sports editor for the Denver Post for the past five years. His choppy style reminded me of a coach calling out plays. He calmed my nerves with an encouraging “great  question,” and always tried using “we” instead of “I” when referring to his staff. Over the past 10 years of working for the Denver Post, sports has begun to rub off on him. The reporters and photographers are his team as he constantly reevaluates the coverage the Denver Post is publishing. The Denver Post is an award-winning newspaper  and the premier source for news about the Denver Broncos. Monserud stands by his belief that, “there will always be a place for good writing, good writers and the craft of writing” in today’s news industry.

Question and Answer

“A great part of great writing is great editing.”
