Gary Shapiro: The Podcast

After 39 years with 9News, Gary Shapiro retired on December 9. That’s a lot of 9s. He had a unique vantage point to the biggest stories that happened in Colorado over four decades. Gary sat down with Bucket List Community Cafe’s podcast to talk about the stories he’s covered, his thoughts on life after television, and reflections on the incredible changes we’ve seen in broadcasting both locally and nationally. Full transparency, Gary and I go way back to our early days at KAKE TV in Wichita, Kansas in the early 80’s. Our paths led us both to Denver and we’ve stayed friends and colleagues. We’re thrilled he sat down to chat with Bucket List Community Cafe.
