KVNF's Gavin Dahl speaks with two reporters at Paonia-based nonprofit magazine High Country News about their latest stories focused on specific Colorado communities: in Gunnison County and the Wet Mountain Valley.

 

Nick Bowlin explains his story based in Gunnison County, "When COVID hit, a Colorado county kicked out second-home owners. They hit back." Then Eric Siegel discusses his story based in the Wet Mountain Valley, "Meet the gun-toting 'Tenacious Unicorns' in rural Colorado."

  

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.
