Daily News staffer takes Boulder post

One of the editors of the Aspen Daily News will be leaving soon to take a job as the Boulder County (Colorado) public information officer, according to a published report.

Jim Burris, who is listed on the Daily News masthead as “another editor,” did a brief stint in 1996 as the editor in chief of the Daily News, then left to become editor of the Boulder Planet.

Last winter, he returned to Aspen to once again work for the Daily News.

He also was a reporter for the Boulder Daily Camera from 1994 to 1996, before leaving for his first tour of duty in Aspen, according to a report published in the Boulder Daily Camera. He also reportedly has been a reporter for the Broomfield Enterprise and a public relations representative for the San Diego Opera.

There was no indication when Burris will leave Aspen to take on the duties of his new position.
