KUNC's Colorado Edition

MONDAY-THURSDAY AT 6:30 P.M. / TUESDAY-FRIDAY AT 8:30 A.M.

KUNC's Colorado Edition is a daily look at the stories, news, people and issues important to you. It's a window to the communities along the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

The show explores the big stories of the day, bringing context and insight to issues that matter. And because life in Northern Colorado is a balance of work and play, we explore the lighter side of news, highlighting what makes this state such an incredible place to live.

Colorado Edition airs on KUNC Monday through Thursday at 6:30 p.m., with a rebroadcast of the previous evening's show Tuesday through Friday at 8:30 a.m., and is available as a podcast online and wherever you get your podcasts:
