Mike Dennison, chief of the Great Falls (Mont.) Tribune’s capitol bureau, will move to the Billings Gazette in September. He succeeds Allison Farrell, who moved to West Virginia.
The bureau Dennison will be working in covers statewide issues and state government and politics for five newspapers: The Gazette, Montana Standard of Butte, Helena Independent Record, Missoulian, and Ravalli Republic of Hamilton. All are owned by Lee Enterprises.
Dennison has covered politics and state government in Montana for almost 20 years, including many campaigns and legislative sessions. He has been chief of the Great Falls Tribune’s capitol bureau for the past 13 years.
Prior to joining the paper, Dennison worked for The Associated Press in Helena from 1984-1992 and as a correspondent for the news wire in Grand Junction, Colo. He also worked as a reporter for United Press International in Seattle.
