Noelle Leavitt Riley is the managing editor of the Craig Daily Press and the Saturday Morning Press. Her growth in media stems from learning how to handle certain situations under pressure as an editor, reporter, broadcaster and volunteer. She was a pioneer of multimedia in Colorado, helping The Denver Post create, launch and maintain daily podcast from 2005 through 2006. After her venture at the Post, Leavitt Riley became the news editor of four community newspapers west of Denver operated by Landmark Community Newspapers. In 2007, she took a reporting position at the Denver Business Journal, covering hospitality, tourism, retail and aviation.
She left the journal in December 2008, to freelance and run the Forget Me Not foundation — an organization that delivers flowers to seniors in nursing homes, letting them know they are not forgotten by society. She started at the Craig Daily Press in May of 2013 and looks forward to continuing her growth in journalism through this position.
