A new reporter has stepped into the city government beat for BusinessDen.
Eric Heinz, who joined the staff last month, is a Denver native who most recently covered Los Angeles City Hall for City News Service, a regional wire service in Southern California.
“Denver is where I have always wanted to live and work,” Heinz said. “I am eager to take on this new role with a spirited team of journalists.”
In his initial weeks at BusinessDen, Heinz has brought readers up to speed on the fight over the future of the 155-acre Park Hill Golf Club property, broken news regarding the approval of Denver’s first “safe parking” site and covered recent rulings upholding the establishment of a city-sanctioned homeless encampment outside a church in Park Hill.
Heinz graduated from East High School and the University of Northern Colorado. He worked for small and mid-sized newspapers in northern New Mexico and Southern California before joining City News Service.
Heinz joins BusinessDen reporters Lily O’Neill and Thomas Gounley, who also serves as editor.
