Area radio stations win state awards

Staff Report

Three area radio stations have been honored by the Colorado Broadcasters Association.

• KSNO-FM in Glenwood Springs won Best News Feature, Report or Series for a story by Elizabeth Drolet on paddleboarding the Colorado River and taking listeners along for the ride.

• KAJX (Aspen Public Radio) won Best Public Affairs Program for “Valley Roundup,” a weekly discussion among journalists about issues in the area. The Post Independent is regularly represented on the panel.

• KDNK News won an award for the “Best Regularly Scheduled Newscast, Medium Market.” It was the first time the Carbondale community station has won for the local newscast. The 2015 award for KDNK comes from a combination of two submitted newscasts on dates designated by the broadcasters’ association.

“We have made it a priority to serve the community through local news since 2006,” said KDNK station manager Steve Skinner. “This award shows that community stations can supplement local access programming with professional journalism.”
