Capitol Coverage is a project created by the Rocky Mountain Community Radio coalition (made up of 19 stations in Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, and Wyoming) and managed by KUNC in Greeley.

Raleigh Burleigh

Rocky Mountain Community Radio has a new capitol reporter. News Director Raleigh Burleigh gave Scott Franz the opportunity to introduce himself to KDNK listeners at this week's conference.

Jeff Pope

One of the longtime leaders of the Rocky Mountain Community Radio coalition's effort to produce Capitol Coverage just retired as the manager of KSJD Cortez. Jeff Pope has been a role model in our movement for the past decade. KDNK's Gavin Dahl called him up on his last day and started by asking him what he'll miss most. On behalf of all the listeners across the Rocky Mountains, we thank Jeff Pope for his dedication to public broadcasting, community access, and collaboration.
