COLORADO PUBLIC RADIO (CPR) has appointed award-winning arts reporter CHLOE VELTMAN as Editor for CPR’s forthcoming arts bureau and online arts hub. VELTMAN's decade-plus of experience includes working for THE NEW YORK TIMES as the weekly BAY AREA arts correspondent, and for the SF WEEKLY as its chief theater critic. Veltman is also the creator, host and producer of VoiceBox, a weekly, syndicated public radio and podcast series about the human voice and the best of the vocal music scene, based out of KALW/SAN FRANCISCO.
"CHLOE’s wealth of knowledge and passion for the arts will be paramount as we build out the arts bureau and expand coverage," CPR VP/News KELLEY GRIFFIN said. "We’re thrilled to welcome her and can’t wait to harness her creativity and leadership as we chart the next chapter of CPR’s future by launching our first comprehensive multi-media news bureau."
"I was drawn to COLORADO PUBLIC RADIO not only because of the organization’s existing commitment to supporting the arts, but also for its leadership and vision for how that commitment can expand to serve a larger and more diverse audience," VELTMAN said. "Listeners depend on CPR to provide coverage that can’t be found anywhere else, and I’m looking forward to building on that mission by bringing COLORADO’s cultural community to the forefront."
