On the eve of NFL draft day, sit down with Denver Post staffers to talk Broncos -- everything from the unforgettable 2013 season, the oh-so-forgettable Super Bowl and all of the moves the team has made to make another run at the Lombardi Trophy.
Attendees will meet:
Sportswriter Mike Klis started at The Post in 1998. A graduate of Murray (Ky.) State University, Klis started at The Post with the Colorado Rockies and moved to the Broncos beat in July 2005. Compilations of his work are part of a number of books recapping recent Broncos seasons: "Will to Win," on the remarkable 2011 year with Tim Tebow, "Peyton Manning, Leader of the Broncos," on Manning's first year with the team, and "Season to Remember," on the record-breaking 2013 season. Earlier this year, Klis won the Associated Press Sports Editors award for Top Breaking News Story for his reporting on the the Elvis Dumervil fax fiasco. Klis was also named 2013 Colorado Sportswriter of the year by the National Sportswriter and Sportscasters Association.
Sportswriter Troy Renck just joined the Broncos beat after many years covering the Colorado Rockies and Major League Baseball. Renck came to The Post in 2002, and he has won more than 20 local and national writing awards since graduating from the University of Colorado journalism school with honors in 1993. Since at The Denver Post, he has written roughly 3,500 articles and blogs, while covering nine World Series and eight All-Star Games. He is the author of “Baseball’s 100 Greatest Personalities, ’’ “Baseball’s Greatest Rivalries’’ and a compilation of his work is included in The Denver Post’s “A Magical Season,’’ chronicling the Rockies’ 2007 run to the World Series.
A published author and award-winning journalist, columnist Benjamin Hochman has covered numerous major events, including the Super Bowl, the NBA Finals, the BCS championship game and the Beijing Olympics. The St. Louis native and Missouri School of Journalism graduate has finished with top-10 honors in the prestigious APSE national sportswriting contest five times in the past five years (in his former role covering the Denver Nuggets). Hochman previously worked on the staff of the Times-Picayune in New Orleans, where he wrote the Hurricane Katrina-themed book, "Fourth and New Orleans," published in 2007. In his free time, he performs stand-up comedy around the Denver area.
