China wants some of its news to be Made in the USA, which could bring 300 jobs to Denver. That’s the top topic in the Mile-High City after six officials of China’s state-run news agency visited to see whether the Silver State provides a golden opportunity for it to challenge CNN, the Denver Post reported.

The delegation from the CNC World channel met separately with Gov. John Hickenlooper and Denver Mayor-Elect Michael Hancock when the group visited the state capital Sunday and Monday, the Post reported.

The Chinese agency is looking for a site for a production facility and studio that would employ as many as 300 people at an international English-language news channel with a lofty goal of challenging CNN, as well as the BBC.

The delegation also is visiting New York and at least one other U.S. city, Colorado official David Thomson told the Post.

"They're looking for a U.S. base to have a production facility and studio where they can be centrally located in the U.S.," said Thomson, global development director for Colorado's Economic Development and International Trade Office. "That's why they're considering Denver."

Correspondents could be placed throughout the country, with Denver as home base, Hancock told the Post.

China's news agency launched the CNC World channel last year to promote the country's image and viewpoint, and ultimately to challenge the BBC and CNN, according to the British newspaper The Guardian.
