Brian Larson

News Director

Email: brian.larson@kunc.org

I oversee KUNC’s growing staff of reporters, assigning and editing the stories that you hear on your radio and in our podcast, Colorado Edition.

I’m one of the old-timers at KUNC, joining in 1993 as the local host of All Things Considered. Since then, I’ve worked through every job in the news department from host to reporter, news director and now managing editor.

Over the years, my work has received numerous awards from organizations like the Colorado Broadcasters Association, the Associated Press and the Society of Professional Journalists. I’m proud to have played an integral role in elevating KUNC’s reporting work to the level of national recognition and training reporters that have moved on to other media careers including NPR.

When I’m not working, which my wife Tanya says I do all the time, I enjoy spending time with her fixing up our yard and home, playing guitar and getting out for the occasional round of golf.
