DENVER, March 15, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Statement of Gregory L. Moore, Editor, The Denver Post

Over the past 14 years, I've worked assiduously to make The Denver Post the best it can be. From historic floods, tragic wildfires, the anguish of Aurora to the joys of Super Bowl 50, our newspaper has been committed to telling the stories just as they happened. That's the trademark of a great newspaper – getting the facts and reliably relaying that information to the community. Nothing more, nothing less.

Under my watch, our newspaper has been awarded four Pulitzer Prizes, the highest recognition in journalism for outstanding work. I want to thank everyone responsible for making those awards possible, for giving this community a newspaper it can be proud of, even as The Post, like other daily newspapers, faces the economic challenges brought on by the digital revolution.

The Denver Post will continue its outstanding work; there is strong and stable leadership in place. But it's time for a fresh voice to lead from the corner office.  After 14 years, I've decided it's time for new challenges and I will step down as editor of this great newspaper.

When I arrived from Boston in 2002, some predicted it would be for a short stay. Not only have I proved the naysayers wrong, but with my family this community has become our community.  Denver is our home, just as it is yours.

I look forward to exploring new ways to contribute to this community, to making it a better place for our children and the generations that follow.  And most of all, thank you to all our readers.  We are here to serve you. There are so many ways that you can get the news, thank you for trusting in me, and trusting The Denver Post. 

Michael K. Frisby
