Stephen Keating, the business editor of the Denver Post, will step down from his position next month to launch a new website for the Colorado paper’s political coverage.

Stephen KeatingIn an e-mail, Keating said, “Beginning April, I’ll be developing and editing a new website for the Denver Post that focuses on politics in the ’08 election cycle, including the Democratic National Convention that meets in Denver in August ’08. It’s a great opportunity to work in new media on a national issue for the Post. I’ll be working across the newsroom and reporting to the managing editor for news, Gary Clark.

“It’s full-time, so I’ll step down as business editor. No one has been named to that position, but the point person is Jeff Taylor, the assistant managing editor for projects and business.

“Also, I’m running for re-election to the SABEW board…and so hope to be of service and continue those ties to business journalism.”

Keating was hired by fellow SABEW board member Henry Dubroff as a business reporter at the Post in 1994 and published a non-fiction book in 1999 titled “Cutthroat� about media moguls in the cable and satellite TV industry.

From mid-2000 until his return to the Post in November 2003, he ran a foundation at the University of Denver that researched privacy and technology issues. In 2005, he was a preliminary judge in the beat reporting category for the Gerald Loeb Awards.
