Colorado Public Radio joined the Chamber in 2008 and since that time, it has provided tremendous support to the Chamber and its members. As a Chamber Champion, we want to highlight the organizations and businesses that support the Chamber. Here is a little information on Colorado Public Radio.
Colorado Public Radio is a two-channel public radio network providing a twenty-four hour classical music service and full-time in-depth news and information service to more than 85% of Colorado’s citizens.
KCFR, Colorado Public Radio’s news and information service, provides listeners with information that informs, enlightens and entertains. National and international programming includes National Public Radio’s Morning Edition, All Things Considered, Fresh Air, Talk of the Nation, the BBC World Service; and weekend favorites like Car Talk and A Prairie Home Companion.
KCFR’s local news brings the citizens of Colorado context and perspective on the issues that have the greatest impact on the state and region. It includes hourly newscasts, drive-time features, and “Colorado Matters,” a daily news interview program that focuses on key state issues, including government, education, health, and the environment.
KCFR involves its listeners through the Pubic Insight Network (PIN), a network of individuals who volunteer to share their experiences and expertise on a variety of topics, broadening and diversifying KCFR’s ability to serve as Coloradans’ primary source for intelligent public discourse.

As a fully local service, KVOD demonstrates its commitment to providing programs and promotions deeply tied to our community, not just during Colorado Spotlight, but throughout the day.
