Sawyer McKenney, left, and Colt Sutherlin hike in ice caves near the Grottos Day Use Area on June 18. Minutes later, McKenney narrowly survived a fall into the Roaring Fork River.

KDNK News Director Morgan Neely has the news, including a harrowing tale of survival in the Grottos Day Use Area off Independence Pass. Also, Roaring Fork School District students are struggling, and the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened the achievement gap between wealthy white students and economically disadvantaged students of color; and new federal funding to develop outdoor recreation economies is on the way to rural communities in the Mountain West.

Morgan is KDNK's News Director. He comes to KDNK with public radio passion and experience. He was a news host, reporter, and opps guy at APR and also worked with Pitkin County for a couple of years. He says that getting back to public radio and reporting is where he wants to be.
