KVNF is part of Rocky Mountain Community Radio, a 16-member coalition of community radio stations in Colorado, Utah, and New Mexico that share content.
Last week, KVNF participated in a the RMCR Conference in Carbondale hosted by community radio station KDNK.
As part of the conference, KVNF’s Laura Palmisano, RMCR's Bente Birkland, and KUNC’s Brian Larson, talked about the nitty-gritty of reporting and the effort and hurdles that aren’t heard on the radio. The program was hosted by KDNK News Director January Jones.
Colorado made history when it opened up licensed marijuana retail shops this year. Aside from just legalizing the purchase of smoke-able marijuana, it also means pot brownies have the potential to be big business.
Food products infused with marijuana’s psychoactive ingredient, THC, are available in stores across the state.
