Kevin Flynn, 62, is a native of Easton, Pa. He was city editor of a suburban Philadelphia daily newspaper when, in 1981, he moved to Denver to become the City Hall reporter for the Rocky Mountain News. He remained there more than 27 years until the newspaper shut down in February 2009. After the News’ closure, Kevin started his own small business to continue writing online about transportation, which was the last beat he had covered.
In April 2010, Kevin was hired by the Regional Transportation District to manage the public information program for the FasTracks commuter rail project, which includes the East Rail Line to Denver International Airport and the Gold Line through north Denver.
He is an author of two non-fiction books, including one on the 1984 murder of KOA talk show host Alan Berg in Denver, which he covered for the News.
Kevin is married to Harriet Novak and between them they have five children, all on their own, and two grandchildren, with two more on the way. He is a graduate with a degree in philosophy from LaSalle University in Philadelphia, and a choir director at Mother Cabrini Shrine on Lookout Mountain.
