Meet Snowmass Sun reporter Maddie Vincent. She's new in the valley, but not new to journalism. In fact, she's the third generation of her family to pursue the profession. KDNK station manager Gavin Dahl asked her about her multiple degrees, why she's excited to cover Snowmass, and quizzed her on when the Snowmass Village town council meets. (She passed, of course.) Tune in to KDNK in Snowmass Village at 99.9FM.
