Neil Best

President & CEO

As president, I oversee all day-to-day operations and programming and production decisions for Community Radio for Northern Colorado.

I joined the staff of KUNC in 1972.  During my tenure I have been a music host, education reporter, news director, program director, and since 1992, the general manager. Over the years it has been my pleasure to be involved in the northern Colorado Community including service on the board of directors of the Colorado Farm Show, the Greeley Chamber of Commerce, Greeley Rotary, and the United Way of Weld County campaign committee.  I have also served on numerous review panels and advisory committees for National Public Radio, Public Radio International, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and on the board of directors of Public Radio Program Directors, INC. In 2001 I received the Public Radio International Award for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Along with my wife Joyce, we are parents to Brian and Brandon, recent graduates of the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.
