Jack Queen is the public safety and courts reporter for the Summit Daily News. He also reports on the towns of Frisco and Dillon. Queen earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from Colorado College in Colorado Springs, where he served as editor-in-chief for the student newspaper, the Catalyst. Originally from Austin, Texas, Queen moved to Colorado to get closer to the mountains. He was inspired to jump into the newspaper business after reading several pieces by Chicago newspaper columnist Mike Royko. “I fell in love with Mike Royko’s style, his voice, the whole newspaper mystique,” Queen said. “I think digital storytelling has a lot to offer, but it’s missing something that brick-and mortar papers have — the ability to plant strong roots in community.”
