Colorado Edition: Diametrically Opposed
Today on Colorado Edition: We’ll get the latest on how Colorado’s congressional districts are set to change as an independent commission redraws districts based on numbers from the 2020 census. We’ll also remember the life and legacy of former NFL wide receiver Vincent Jackson, and look back at his time as a football player in his home state of Colorado. Plus, we hear about an annual art exhibit involving Lakewood’s beloved Casa Bonita restaurant.
Today’s guests include: Sandra Fish, a data journalist reporting for the Colorado Sun; and Brandon Charles, assistant athletic director and chief of football operations for the University of Northern Colorado. And today’s show features reporting from: KUNC’s rural and small communities reporter Adam Rayes; and KUNC's arts and culture reporter Stacy Nick.
