Aaron Lopez - Nuggets Beat Writer

Aaron Lopez

After 15 years as a Denver sports writer, Aaron Lopez brought his journalistic talents to the Nuggets at the start of the 2009-10 season.

Lopez is the primary writer for Nuggets.com, providing behind-the-scenes content, including stories and video for the site. With firsthand knowledge of what beat writers need on a daily basis, he also assists the media relations staff in working with local and national reporters covering the team.

Before joining the Nuggets, Lopez spent seven years as a Nuggets beat writer for the Rocky Mountain News. He also covered the Colorado Avalanche and wrote in-depth feature articles for the newspaper until it closed in February 2009.

Lopez began his professional career with the Associated Press in 1994, covering anything and everything in the Denver area, including the Nuggets, Avalanche, Denver Broncos, Colorado Rockies and three major universities, Air Force, Colorado and Colorado State.

Lopez, 42, graduated from the University of Washington in 1993 and now lives in Arvada with his wife Michelle and the CIA – their three children Cruz, Isabelle and Alexander.
