You may have noticed a few changes around here.

We just launched the first major upgrade to The Colorado Sun’s website since we went live back in September 2018.

In partnership with Lede by Alley Interactive, we’ve completely redesigned the way looks and feels to make it easier for readers like you to find exactly what you’re looking for. But even if you just want to catch up on the news, we made it easier to browse the homepage until you see something that catches your eye.

And the changes aren’t just superficial — we rewrote the code from the ground up to make our already great reading experience even faster and cleaner. (Attention nerds: We’re now running a headless CMS based on Wordpress, which is one of the reasons things feel snappier.)

And stay tuned, we’ve got more in store for you this year. We’ll soon be regularly launching new features, like topic pages to help you keep track of state politics, the outdoor industry, education and much more!

We’re dedicated to creating the best news-reading experience in Colorado, and we would love your feedback. Once you’ve read a story or two and had some time to browse, send us a note at with your questions, comments and concerns.

We’re able to put the time, effort and resources into improving the experience of our site because we work for our readers, not some distant corporate board. Help us continue in our mission to serve the whole state of Colorado by becoming a member today for as little as $5 a month.
