KUNC's Colorado Edition


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 9:30 a.m., and is available as a podcast online and wherever you get your podcasts:

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals recently ruled on the legality of the Title X Family Planning Program. In 2019, Colorado and about two dozen other states sued the federal government over changes the Trump administration made to the program. The court, which has jurisdiction over most of the West Coast, upheld the federal government's new regulations.

Colorado Edition co-host Erin O'Toole spoke to KUNC's Stephanie Daniel about what a new study can tell us about the impact this will have on Colorado.
