I’m not a Colorado native (did you know that "I'm from Missouri" means "I'm skeptical of the matter and not easily convinced?") but I have lived here for most of my life and couldn't imagine leaving. After graduating from Colorado State University, I did what everyone wants to do; I moved to the mountains and skied, hiked, and hid from responsibility! Our listeners in the mountains may know me from my time in Steamboat Springs and Vail or as the voice of the Battle Mountain Huskies Hockey team in Vail.

I now call Denver home and I dig the easy access to the mountains as well as the live music, theater and pro & college hockey. When I am not enjoying any of the previous, I love to cook, work on improving my barbecue or constantly rediscover albums I forgot I had in an ever growing music collection.

Station Announcement

Auxiliary Antenna Installation Complete on 91.5fm

Tower crew working on bolting the auxiliary antenna in place on the undamaged section of the tower. The auxiliary replaces the damaged main, which was cut in half by the wind storm on Nov. 13th.

On Nov. 13th high winds in Northern Colorado toppled part of the tower at the KUNC main transmitter and severely damaged the main antenna. We are happy to report that the installation of the auxiliary antenna on Wednesday and Thursday (Dec 7th & 8th) went well. Final adjustments of the antenna were completed today.
