|(above) Contact the Denver Post about DU hockey coverage or risk seeing DU's flagship sport falling off the mainstream media highway|
Several LetsGoDU readers of the Denver Post noticed that the DU hockey coverage was significantly reduced last week. No mid-week article on the team, no preview on the series on Friday and then a pathetic four paragraph AP story on the game on Friday night.
We've been spoiled over the past few years with excellent DU hockey coverage by the Post. Mike Chambers, Adrian Dater, Terry Frei and Mark Kiszla have done an amazing job covering the Pioneers after the demise of the Rocky Mountain News.
The Post deserves credit for stepping forward and covering college hockey better than any other large newspaper in recent years. Far better than the Boston Globe, the Star-Tribune and New York papers combined. But now our coverage is being compromised and DU's flagship sport will inevitably suffer if the trend continues.
Contact Denver Post Sports Editor Scott Monserud [firstname.lastname@example.org] ASAP unless you want the largest paper in the Rockies covering CU's 1-8-0 football program exclusively in the fishwrap.
