Job Description

Position: News Director

Reports to: Program Director

Terms: Full time, salary, pay DOE

Azure Eller is a student in KVNF's youth internship program. He produced the following short feature as part of an innovative collaboration in journalism between KVNF and Paonia High School.

I'm 15 years old, and school takes up a huge part of my life. In fact, during the school year, I spend almost half of my time IN school. Unfortunately, right now school's not my favorite thing. I wondered what some of my friends thought, so I decided to ask them.

Here's the way most of them answered, "Ummm... not really. It's not my favorite thing. It's hard. It gets old. I'm lazy."

It was a Thursday night in January. Bitter cold. Dark and dreary.

But the KVNF Community Room was rockin!  DJs and friends gathered to shake their booties together. The Talmage Lounge, another fine example of KVNF hospitality, not to mention a premium benefit of KVNF membership.

If you missed it- don't worry, it will happen again soon.... and ... we have a video.

iSeeChange is a participatory environmental reporting project led by Julia Kumari Drapkin at KVNF. It generates story topics from users' weather observations, and then taps scientists to explain the whys and hows. This bottom-up crowd-sourcing has foreshadowed some of the nation's biggest recent weather stories—weeks and sometimes even months in advance. Stories sourced from the KVNF community have been reported throughout 2012.

MAKE HIM DANCE!

Oct 10, 2012

This just in!

The "wooden, dancing, mannequin, puppet guy" near Jeff's desk in the KVNF office has joined the cause! In a mysterious turn of events, he showed up yesterday with a hand-written note of his very own, proclaiming that he, "Will dance for pledges"! Who could turn down such a generous offer of support from our loyal friend.

Make a pledge! See him dance! Maybe a little stop motion animation? For the right price?
