Mike Singer named Colorado Sportswriter of the Year for 2021

Denver Post reporter Mike Singer was named Colorado Sportswriter of the Year for 2021 by the National Sports Media Association on Tuesday.

The annual award, voted on by peers in each state, was given to Singer for his work as The Post’s primary Denver Nuggets beat writer. Singer is in his fourth year covering the Nuggets for The Post. He arrived in Denver at the start of the 2018-19 season following a stint as the national NBA editor at USA TODAY.

“This is a richly deserved honor for Mike, whose energy and expertise covering the Nuggets in second to none,” said Scott Monserud, Assistant Managing Editor/Sports for The Post. “Mike has a superb talent connecting with readers as well as gaining the trust of sources who allow him to break stories. We are thrilled Mike received this honor from NSMA.”

In a season that saw center Nikola Jokic named NBA MVP, and the Nuggets advance to the Western Conference semifinals, Singer documented every twist and turn. Among his most memorable stories was one on the rise of Jokic from second-round pick to the league MVP and another on the trainer behind his development. He also provided extensive coverage of the team’s playoff run, the Nuggets’ trade for Aaron Gordon and the numerous injuries that have befallen the franchise over the past year.

The NSMA’s Colorado Sportswriter of the Year has been awarded to a Denver Post reporter or columnist 12 of the past 13 years.

In addition, the NSMA named AT&T SportsNet’s Jenny Cavnar the Colorado Sportscaster of the Year. Turner Sports’ Ernie Johnson and ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt shared the national sportscaster of the year award, and ESPN.com’s Jeff Passan was named the national sportswriter of the year.
