KUNC's Colorado Edition

Monday-Thursday at 6:30 p.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 will explore 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'll 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. (beginning Sept. 2, 2019), and will be available as a podcast each afternoon, online and wherever you get your podcasts:

This week, more than a third of U.S. homes are now in what they call the wildland urban interface, where they risk being destroyed by wildfires. That concern is increasingly common in Colorado. When fires happen, there's more consensus that they should be designated as natural disasters.
