Newspapers' Histories 

The Profile



The Profile was founded in October 1978 by Deborah Wiig, and by the early 1980s it had become a vital force for community exchange, revitalization and unity in the Washington Park area. In 1983, Paul Kashmann became the new publisher after years of working as an advertising executive, writer and editor for The Profile. Kashmann now serves as City Councilman for Denver District 6.

Under Kashmann’s lead, the paper grew throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s to cover neighborhoods of central, south-central, and near southeast Denver, including Cherry Creek, the University of Denver area, and over 20 other neighborhoods. At the start of 1995, Eileen Abbattista joined The Profile as an office assistant and, over time, grew into the critical roles of Office Manager and Editor.

In February of 2015, Jill Farschman took over as the new Publisher with a mission to expand The Profile’s online presence while fostering meaningful engagement with local residents and businesses. Today, The Profile continues to deliver quality news and editorial content while supporting the efforts of Denver’s residents to protect and enhance the quality of life in our community.
