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.
