Reporter returns to her roots

A self-described "Minnesotan-turned-Coloradan," Kristen Painter will soon have to "turn" back the other away again: Painter joins the Minneapolis Star Tribune tomorrow as a business reporter covering growth and development. She was most recently a reporter covering aviation and airlines for The Denver Post.

"Personal Twitter news: I am leaving the @denverpost on Aug. 28 to join the @StarTribune as the growth & development reporter," Painter shared recently on Twitter.

"Congrats, Kristen!" Matt Bennett greeted the news, adding the warning, "It gets cold up there..."

"Thank you! I grew up there so I know all about the cold. But, yes, I am going to miss these moderate Colorado winters!" she replied.

Pack warm, then, Kristen!
