Up on the Roof with a “National” Perspective!
We hope everyone takes advantage of this opportunity for an “off the record” Q&A with national, award-winning, CNN journalist, Jim Spellman! He was originally scheduled for our May 16th meetup, but had to travel out of town to cover the devastation in the south and the Joplin tornado. He is back in town, and we hope it will be a slow news period so that he isn’t called away again.
Over his decade of work at CNN, Mr. Spellman has covered homeland security, terrorism, and politics, and traveled extensively as a producer for Anderson Cooper 360. Since moving to Denver in 2008, he has reported extensively on the Tea Party movement, attending well over 50 tea party events across the country.
He won his first Peabody award for coverage of Hurricane Katrina and has since received two additional Peabody awards. Recent top stories include covering the BP oil spill from the Gulf coast and the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti.
I would be happy to hold a July 4th meetup if we have enough interest. Realizing this is a busy family and travel weekend, I will need your input before making a decision. Please email or send me a FB message immediately:
Would you be able to attend and if so, would the morning, afternoon, or evening work best. One thought that I had was to meet in the morning at a park in Golden, before most have family commitments, for a breakfast get together. Would anyone be interested in hosting a get together at their home? Let me know firstname.lastname@example.org
