STATE BILL COLORADO
The Colorado Statesman, the state’s political weekly newspaper, has hired veteran writer and editor Scot Kersgaard as its managing editor.
Kersgaard had his first byline in today’s paper.
Kersgaard may be best known as a former press secretary to former U.S. Sen. Tim Wirth, D-Colo. His bio also includes time spent as director of public relations for a Fortune 400 high-tech firm and experience as a newspaper owner, editor and reporter.
For the past 10 years, Kersgaard worked as a freelance writer/editor/PR person and as a real estate agent. His freelance clients included Ford, GE, IBM and Microsoft.
Kersgaard hails from Sun Valley, Idaho. He moved to Vail in 1987, and then to Denver in 1990.
The Statesman bills itself as Colorado’s weekly nonpartisan political newspaper. It was founded in 1898 and is owned and edited by Jody Hope Strogoff.
