KBDI-TV to roll out Colorado Public News

According to The Associated Press, Denver-based broadcast station KBDI-TV is planning a nonprofit investigative news operation with a Web site and on-air program. KBDI-TV said this week it will launch the project when it raises an initial $400,000 in funding.

An actual target launch date for the program has yet to be announced. Wick Rowland, KBDI’s president and CEO, says the project will ask for tax-deductible donations from community members, corporations and foundations—similar to the donor base for public television.

The operation will be called Colorado Public News. The editor-in-chief is Ann Imse, who was a reporter for the now-closed Rocky Mountain News.

Rowland says the venture is in response to “the reduction of significant investigative journalism” nationally and locally.
