After we announced the creation of Chalkbeat a few weeks ago, we promised we would continue to give you updates on what’s going on behind the scenes. Today, we want to introduce you to Chalkbeat Colorado’s bureau chief Maura Walz.
Many of you already know Maura, so consider this a re-introduction.
In this interview, Maura talks about why she’s excited about EdNews Colorado becoming Chalkbeat Colorado and how readers can help her reporting team on one of their “focus area” reporting topics. (Sorry for the bit of background noise toward the end of the interview. Our New York reporter had to take a call from a teacher on her lunch break!)
