From Neil Best’s Desk: Participate In Our Editorial Process

Dear Friends,

We have always been curious about what you are curious about. The journalism you hear on KUNC is guided by our reporters and by hearing from listeners, tipping us off to stories that deserve to be told. That process results in in-depth and meaningful reporting.

Now we have an even better way to bring you into the editorial process!  We invite you to participate in a pilot project, Divided Colorado, to help shape the reporting at KUNC.

When we took a close look at the numbers from the 2016 election, one thing stood out to us: the division. From county to county, city to city, you could see the divisions mapped out across Colorado in how people voted -- rural and urban, Democrat and Republican, Western Slope and Eastern Plains.

Colorado is a complex, diverse place. We want to do a better job of representing it.

Our Divided Colorado project seeks to help us learn more about each other. We want to know what topics create tension at the dinner table, what discussions are banned at your grandparent’s house, what issues are tiptoed around at the office. We want to not just explore those topics, and what makes them divisive, but help both sides of the issue reach an understanding, even if they don’t agree. 

At our website answer the question, what would you ask someone of the opposite side of an issue from you, to help you better understand their perspective? 

You are already partnering with KUNC as a member, now you can partner with KUNC as a contributor to our editorial process.
