KG Newman graduated from Arapahoe High School and Arizona State University before beginning his career as a sportswriter in Alamogordo, New Mexico, in 2013.
After a brief stint as a sports editor in Alamogordo, the 2012 valedictorian of the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism moved to South Bend, Indiana, to take a job running a digital sports journalism start-up.
Another start-up brought him back to Denver, shortly after which he began writing for The Denver Post in 2016. He currently covers the Colorado Rockies as well as other professional, college and high school sports in the Denver metro area.
His main creative influences include poets Stephen Dunn, G.C. Waldrep, T.R. Hummer, Norman Dubie, Charles Simic and William Carlos Williams as well as sportswriters Frank Deford, Lee Jenkins, Rick Reilly and Wright Thompson.
