Longtime Denver Post sports journalist Mike Klis has left the newspaper and will join KUSA-Channel 9 as a Broncos reporter, Joanne Ostrow confirmed Thursday.

Klis has been covering the Broncos since 2005 and has broken dozens of stories in the decade since then. He will start at 9NEWS on Monday.

According to KUSA's Linda Kotsaftis, Klis has won numerous Associated Press Sports Editors awards and was a two-time recipient of the Colorado Sportswriter of the Year award from the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association. He's also appeared regularly as a radio (105.5 ESPN) and TV (ESPN, Fox Sports Network and NFL Network) guest as a Broncos insider.

"During his 17 years here, Mike has excelled. He has won numerous APSE national writing honors since he’s been on the Broncos beat and is one of the hardest working journalists we’ve ever known," Post Editor Greg Moore and Sports Editor Scott Monserud told the Post's staff.

I have been writing about the Broncos since 2008, and I have written "according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post" in my own stories countless times. He has been one of the top sources for Broncos news in recent years. He will be replaced on the Broncos beat by Troy Renck.

"Mike loves The Post, but at this stage of his career it was enticing to take on this new challenge. He has been an incredible force at The Post and he will be missed. His departure is effective immediately," Moore and Monserud said.

MHR wishes Klis the best with 9NEWS and we look forward to Renck's continued coverage.
