Eric Goold moved to Paonia in 2008. His career as a journalist spans more than 15 years, mostly as a sports writer for both daily and weekly newspapers in four different states. His background in radio began at KVNF in 2012 when he became a volunteer DJ hosting the Emotional Rescue show. He did a stint as KVNF's morning news host in 2014 and came back in 2016 to host Morning Edition as well as produce and host KVNF's Regional Newscast.

Goold is proud to carry on a strong tradition of community journalism at KVNF and works hard to maintain the standard established by the volunteers and professionals who created the KVNF News department. When he has free time he likes to walk his 12 year old pitbull Isabel around town.
