Gregory L. Moore, editor of the Denver Post since June 2002, has been named the Benjamin C. Bradlee Editor of the Year by the National Press Foundation for leading coverage of the Aurora movie theatre shooting spree.
A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Moore spent six years at The Plain Dealer, where he began his editing career, first as state political editor in 1982 and later as city editor.
In April, 1986, he joined the Boston Globe, where he started as a senior editor in charge of criminal justice and courts coverage. A year later, he was named city editor and in 1989 he became the assistant managing editor for local news. In 1991, he was promoted to deputy managing editor, and was named managing editor in 1994.
The Benjamin C. Bradlee Editor of the Year Award was established in 1984 to recognize significant achievements that enhance the quality of journalism in the United States. The award is named in honor of Benjamin C. Bradlee who served as executive editor of The Washington Post from 1968 to 1991.
“The Denver Post has emerged as a singular force for news coverage in Colorado,” stated National Press Foundation’s Selection Committee. “Moore is an inspiring newsroom leader widely admired throughout the industry.”
