Penny Parker is Colorado’s source for celebrity and entertainment news, from the latest restaurants and their hottest specials to don’t-miss society fundraisers and fashion events.
After six years as a business writer at The Denver Post, Parker opted to cross Colfax and join the Rocky Mountain News as the On the Town columnist. After the paper’s closure, she rejoined The Post. In April 2012, Parker brought On The Town to Blacktie-Colorado, a Denver-based web-service company that brings people and nonprofits together.
In June 2012, Parker became the Colorado Restaurant Association Mile High Chapter’s social-media liaison.
Parker’s background included seven years as a feature writer at The (Everett) Herald, a Washington Post-owned newspaper in Washington state, and a short stint as managing editor for two weeklies near Bellevue, Wash. As a feature writer, she won numerous awards, as well as a Society of Business Editors and Writers award for business writing. Parker is a California native and graduate of San Francisco State University.
