The KDNK news department hosted a special Journalist Roundtable live broadcast on Sunday September 11th. Our guests in the studio were Brent Gardner-Smith from Aspen Journalism, Lynn Burton from The Sopris Sun and Ryan Hoffman from the Rifle Citizen-Telegram and the Post-Independent. We talked about the challenges we face in meeting the information needs of the valley, including a lack of Spanish speakers in our newsrooms, and a simple lack of funding and time to do investigative reporting. And we talked about the stories that need more coverage, for example we cover drug crime but rarely discuss treatment. Thanks again to our guests!
