Colorado Edition: Not The Same River

Luke Runyon
A proposal to pipe water out of Lake Powell and deliver it to communities in southwest Utah led to a backlash from the six other U.S. states that rely on the Colorado River.

Today on Colorado Edition: We look at some of our favorite reporting from the KUNC newsroom in 2020. We learn about pandemic fashion – past, present and future, and we hear an in-depth profile on two Colorado activists. We also learn about the challenges facing rural educators in the pandemic, and the postal workers who kept the mail flowing during a recent wildfire. Plus, we see what’s ahead in 2021 for a handful of Colorado River Basin projects.

Today’s show features reporting from KUNC arts reporter Stacy Nick, American Dream reporter Stephanie Daniel, economy reporter Matt Bloom, rural and small communities reporter Adam Rayes, and Colorado River Basin reporter Luke Runyon.

Colorado Edition is made possible with support from our KUNC members. Thank you!
