Former KCNC Anchor Molly Hughes is being hired by the Denver Post to teach newspaper people TV.
Hughes has been hired as the Director of Denver Post TV. The appointment is being made at a time when “video has become a major platform for us, both in reader engagement and revenue,” Denver Post Editor Greg Moore announced Monday.
The goal for the Post, is basically, if you can't beat them, join them. The newspaper wants to double their video production and turn DPTV into a major vehicle for content delivery.
Hughes will face one of the toughest challenge in journalism: “helping newspaper folks improve their on-air presence.” She joins the staff in late September, and will eventually anchor a number of daily news shows, help build weekly shows with input from every department and work with reporters and editors on breaking news.
