We at MEDLab are proud to have had the opportunity to produce the 2021 Public Benefit Report for the Colorado Sun, a pioneering, journalist-owned news organization that is strengthening the information ecosystem statewide. This report helps fulfill the Sun's obligation as a Colorado Public Benefit Corporation, an incorporation structure that enables companies to dedicate themselves to a public mission, not just private benefit. The stakes have never been higher, as the Sun has experienced significant growth and was recently part of an innovative deal to acquire two dozen newspapers in the Denver area.
The Sun has been a longstanding partner for MEDLab. Read about "How MEDLab Evaluated the Colorado Sun's Public Benefit" for the 2019 report, and watch our event this year on "How 24 Colorado Newspapers Are Staying Locally Owned."
