Katie Klingsporn

Katie Klingsporn grew up in Wyoming, where she learned to love empty spaces and the smell of sagebrush. After graduating from journalism school at the University of Montana, she snagged a job at the Daily Planet newspaper in Telluride, where she started as a reporter and worked her way to editor. After eight years covering festivals, town government, arts and elections, she quit and made an unsuccessful attempt to break up with Telluride. She is an avid mountain biker, snowboarder and music fan who geeks out when it’s time to go mushroom hunting in the San Juans.
