KDNK's Local Newscast airs weekday mornings at 6:41 and 7:41 during Morning Edition.

Mail ballots from this year’s election are starting to be returned. And as Bente Birkeland reports for the Rocky Mountain Community Radio Network, the first set of numbers show that Democrats have turned in more ballots than Republicans so far.

On Thursday, KDNK, the Carbondale Chamber and The Sopris Sun hosted a live broadcast forum for all three of Carbondale’s mayoral candidates. The questions were submitted by members of the community and asked in front of a few dozen community members gathered at the Third Street Center. The entire broadcast is available unedited on our website at KDNK.org. News Director Gavin Dahl has more.

Now that the Bundy group is finally on trial, momentum for seizing federal lands may be slowing down a bit. Eric Galatas explains.

Gavin became one of the youngest station managers in public radio on February 1, 2017. He is a writer and producer with a passion for community media. Prior to starting at KDNK as news director in 2016, Gavin worked for national radio programs Alternative Radio with David Barsamian and Nonprofit Radio with Tony Martignetti along with local stations KGNU Boulder, KYRS Spokane, KRBX Boise, KAOS Olympia, and Air America Radio affiliate KPTK Seattle. His nonprofit management experience includes Open Media Foundation, where he led a government transparency team, and Common Frequency, where his policy advocacy supported dozens of noncommercial radio startups. Boulder Weekly, Raw Story, Austin American-Statesman, Boise Weekly, and The Sopris Sun have published his reporting. His TV credits include directing teams at Colorado Channel, crewing for Democracy Now!, and hosting on Free Speech TV. He graduated from the Evergreen State College in 2008 with a BA in media production and community organizing.
