Who is Gregory L. Moore?

Gregory L. Moore has been the editor of the Denver Post since June, 2002. Previously, he had been managing editor of The Boston Globe since 1994. In his first week on the job, he managed one of the biggest breaking news stories to occur in Colorado, an arsonist's wildfire that was later dubbed the Hayman Fire, a conflagration that eventually took six weeks to extinguish, destroying 132 homes and 138,000 acres of drought-ravaged forest.

Moore has been in the newspaper business for 30 years, beginning his career in 1976 at the Journal-Herald in Dayton, Ohio, where he worked as a reporter covering crime, education, politics and government.

A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Moore spent six years at The Plain Dealer, where he began his editing career, first as state political editor in 1982 and later as day city editor.

In April, 1986, he joined the Boston Globe, where he started as a senior editor in charge of criminal justice and courts coverage. A year later, he was named city editor and in 1989 he became the assistant managing editor for local news, responsible for coverage of Boston, the suburbs and the five other New England states. In 1991, he was promoted to deputy managing editor, and was named managing editor in 1994. He supervised the newspaper's coverage of the September 11 terrorist attacks, an abortion-clinic shooting rampage, the racially charged Charles Stuart murder case and Nelson Mandela's visit to Boston.
