Interview: New program teaches students how to be a landman
A landman is someone who works for energy companies to acquire mineral leases -- around Western Colorado, many visit or contact property owners to get the right to drill for natural gas under their land. Now, it's a profession that you can actually get a degree in at Mesa State College in Grand Junction. It's called the Landman/Energy Management program. Kristy Pollard is with the college, and spoke to KDNK's Mathew Katz about the new program.
