If you saw a silhouetted griffin projected against the clouds last night, yes, it was the Denverite signal — we’ll have another great reporter in the newsroom next week.

With the support of 18 local nonprofits, we’re hiring Donna Bryson to be our housing and hunger reporter.

Donna comes to cover two of the Denver metro area’s most important ongoing stories with a wealth of experience and a ton of great ideas. She’s worked for the Associated Press in London, Cairo, New Delhi and Johannesburg, where she was the bureau chief.

She’s been working as a Denver-based freelance journalist and author for the last six years. She’s reported and written for The Associated Press, The Christian Science Monitor, The Daily Beast, Equal Times, Stanford Social Innovation Review, The New York Times, The Denver Post, Stars and Stripes, VICE and The Wall Street Journal.

Her 2018 book, “Home of the Brave,” covers a grassroots effort in Montrose, Colorado to help military veterans reintegrate into civilian life. Her 2014 book, “It’s a Black White Thing,” about race in South Africa, won awards in Colorado and nationally, and was shortlisted for a national South African prize.

We look forward to having Donna in the office, and we’ll be sure to take a moment on Monday for a more thorough introduction the way we’ve done with Esteban, Allan and (in this case a re-introduction) Ashley.
