Good news for one former Rocky staffer

    From The Pipeline (and Facebook, too, so I'm told):

    Jeff Legwold, former Broncos beat writer at the Rocky Mountain News, has been hired by the Denver Post to join their Broncos beat.

    Yay for Legwold, who had the truest quote of all from one of those videos the Rocky staffers did. It's in MileHigh's sig.

    Congrats to Jeff! Good to see him land on his feet. Hopefully his Rocky peers quickly follow suit.

    Indeed he does. See below.

    Great, great guy. Very happy for him, obviously.

    In honor of MileHigh's quote, I just started the awesome final video on Rockymountainnews.com. Again.

    That music just makes me want to cry.

    Anyway, great for Legwold. He once worked at a paper I worked at (not at the same time), so I'm thrilled for him.

    One question, does anybody know if this was an added position? I assume it is.

    Wasn't his wife one of the people that the Post took on when the News shutdown or do I have that all wrong?
    Congrats though. Legwold used to have a running feud with some of the TV folks, and he would go up behind their cameras and unhook some of the cables so they wouldn't have audio and such.
    Or so reliable sources tell me.

    A tenacious bulldog. Deserved to land on his feet.

    A former Rocky business reporter who the Post took on in late February left, and it's that spot. Also, Jeff's wife was not one of the 11 the Post took on when the Rocky closed, but she landed on her feet at ProPublica early on after the Rocky closed.

    How many people does the Post have covering the Broncos?

    The Post has three on the Broncos beat -- Mike Klis, Lindsey Jones and, now, Jeff Legwold. Not to mention their columnists from time to time -- Woody Paige, Dave Kreiger (another former RMN guy), Jim Armstrong and Mark Kiszla.
