Lake City

Lightning has apparently once again zapped our receiving equipment on Round Top, interrupting the KVNF signal into Lake City. We are awaiting delivery of replacement parts, and will get the 88.7 translator back on the air just as quickly as possible. In the meantime, you can stream KVNF here . Thanks for your patience.

Jeff Reynolds

KVNF's Lake City translator is down for repairs. We apologize for the inconvenience. Lake City listeners can still tune us in online at KVNF.org. We hope to have everything back up & running in a few days.

The North Fork Valley in Delta County opened to settlers in the early 1880's.

The Issue I’m standing in the forest outside of Lake City, the only town in Colorado’s Hinsdale County. The...
