The Salton Sea, a man made lake mainly filled with agricultural runoff, sits behind Imperial Valley farms on October 19, 2018. Local water users are wary about cutting back on agricultural water use, which could exacerbate ecological and health problems caused by the shrinking lake.

The Salton Sea, a man made lake mainly filled with agricultural runoff, sits behind Imperial Valley farms on October 19, 2018. Local water users are wary about cutting back on agricultural water use, which could exacerbate ecological and health problems caused by the shrinking lake.

KDNK's Morgan Neely has Tuesday's news, including Mountain Rescue Aspen performing a late-night extraction of a hiker with no food or water from Crater Lake. Also, Adam Frisch is outraising Lauren Boebert in the leadup to 2024's Colorado CD-3 race. And, the Bureau of Land Management releases a plan that would keep much of the public land along the Arkansas River open to oil and gas development, and farmers in California's Imperial Valley consider conservation measures. Meanwhile, Navajo families held a walk in remembrance of the largest release of radioactive material in American history: the 1979 Church Rock uranium spill in New Mexico.

Morgan is KDNK's News Director. He comes to KDNK with public radio passion and experience. He was a news host, reporter, and operations/programming director at KAJX-Aspen, and has extensive experience working in municipal government.
