Profile

Chris Dempsey, This Denver area native has been a sports journalist for over 20 years writing for the Boulder Daily Camera and the Denver Post. He’s covered college football and basketball, including the NCAA, the NFL Denver Broncos covering two Super Bowls and the NBA Denver Nuggets for the Denver Post before being selected to the television and radio broadcast team for Altitude Television owned by Kronke Sports.

 Christopher Dempsey is a Colorado native, born in Boulder, grew up in Montbello, and attended Montbello High School before moving on to majoring in journalism at the University of Colorado at Boulder. His career of over two decades of sports journalism began in Boulder, covering preps, all manner of sports at CU, and the Denver Broncos for the Daily Camera newspaper.

In 2003, Dempsey moved on to the Denver Post, where he covered the Nuggets, college football at both CU and CSU, the Colorado Rapids and national college basketball. As a 20-something he was once told by a veteran in the business that eventually a life of immersing himself in sports would become stale, that he would look for outlets. Dempsey never believed it. And to this day he counts himself lucky to be working in a world (sports), covering a sport (basketball) and being around a hometown team (the Nuggets) that energizes him every single day.
