Denver columnist Krieger opts for radio gig over sportswriting

Steve Myers reports, “Sports columnist Dave Krieger, who moved to the Post after the Rocky Mountain News closed in 2009, had been guest-hosting a radio show for a while, but when he was offered the gig permanently, he says the newspaper made him choose. He says the move doesn’t reflect on the long-term future of newspapers:

At my age, long-term does not exist,” he says. “And what happens down the road to print journalism or terrestrial radio, for that matter, are long-term trends. I know old media is less well off than it used to be — more endangered. But if I work for another ten or fifteen years, that’ll be great. So for me, it was about what I wanted to do after getting up tomorrow. And I derive a lot of satisfaction from radio.”
