Understanding Denver’s Media Market

Denver’s media landscape is both dynamic and evolving, reflecting broader trends observed across Colorado. A recent report by COLAB, titled State of News in Colorado 2023, provides valuable insights into these shifts. According to the report, Colorado’s media market is characterized by a blend of traditional outlets and an increasing number of digital platforms, mirroring national trends but with unique local nuances.

Key highlights from the COLAB report include:

  • Growth of Digital Media: Digital news platforms are rapidly gaining traction, with a significant portion of the audience now consuming news online. This shift necessitates a robust digital strategy for effective media outreach.
  • Trust in Local News: Despite national trends showing a decline in trust in media, local news outlets in Colorado continue to enjoy a relatively high level of trust. This underscores the importance of building and maintaining relationships with local reporters and editors.
  • Diverse Media Consumption: The report highlights the diversity in media consumption patterns among different demographic groups, emphasizing the need for tailored communication strategies to reach various segments effectively.
  • Challenges Faced by News Outlets: Colorado’s news organizations are navigating challenges such as financial constraints and staffing shortages, impacting their ability to cover news comprehensively. This creates opportunities for PR professionals to provide valuable content and resources to support these outlets.

The report reveals that nearly half of the newsrooms plan to grow their staff this year, while only 5% plan reductions. However, financial instability and staff burnout remain significant challenges, with half of the outlets experiencing revenue declines in 2022 compared to the previous year.
