The Boulder Reporting Lab is a modern local news startup committed to quality journalism that digs beneath the surface. We cover and elevate issues of community concern and pride, for a more informed, inclusive and connected Boulder. We are 100% independent and dedicated to building a model that is sustainable for the long term. (Read our first stories here and here.)
Here's what you've told us you want The Boulder Reporting Lab to be and do...
Hi, I’m Stacy Feldman!
I co-founded the national news organization InsideClimate News. We started as a two-person blog and grew into an award-winning newsroom. I was executive editor during my last five years there.
ICN achieved what many told us would be impossible — a sustainable news business, impact on the national media ecosystem, a Pulitzer Prize. It’s no wonder I believe in entrepreneurial solutions to our local news challenges.
I moved to Boulder with my husband and our two little kids after we fell in love with this mountain city on vacation.
I’m now honored to be a Ted Scripps Fellow at the Center of Environmental Journalism at the University of Colorado Boulder, where I’m building The Boulder Reporting Lab and community around it.
"Stacy was one of the most fearless, exacting editors I've ever worked for — and she brought out the very best in my reporting. As a proud CU graduate, I can't wait to see her investigative skills at work in Boulder. Every community needs a Stacy."
"When I work with reporters and edit stories at NPR, I feel so often like I’m channeling what Stacy taught me as my boss at InsideClimate News. I know to ask my reporters for rigor, smart analysis and ambition, because that's what she wanted from me. I'm certain that journalism focusing on Colorado will only get a big boost with the formidable insight and experience Stacy will bring to this project."
"I've worked on many an ambitious project with Stacy over the years — eager to see what new ground this reporting lab will break. Nothing beats local journalism done well!"
"Stacy is one of the most talented and innovative journalists I know. I am excited to follow her journey on this much-needed local journalism effort."
