Raleigh Burleigh

Programming & News

Raleigh Burleigh is a born local. Raised in the sweet backwaters of Satank, he attended the Carbondale Community School and later Roaring Fork High School. The Carbondale Rotary Club sponsored him as a youth ambassador to Chile for a year before his graduation in 2011. Raleigh then attended Colorado Mountain College, building his associate degree first online from California, then across the Roaring Fork Valley and finally at the Leadville campus. He studied International Affairs and Journalism at the University of Colorado, Boulder then applied those studies traveling throughout South America for the following year. Having returned to Carbondale to recollect himself, Raleigh acquired an internship with KDNK News which has led to this golden opportunity to serve his community as news director while drawing deeper into the rich soils of this confluence.
