Three years ago, longtime Aspen local and well-known journalist, Brent Gardner-Smith, looked at the news landscape in the valley and determined it was lacking in investigative stories. With that in mind, he launched Aspen Journalism. The model of a non-profit news organization in the Roaring Fork Valley was something Gardner-Smith envisioned in grad school, and established after an internship with Pro Publica, one of the nation's largest independent news agencies. Board President Tim McFlynn also contributes in the first part of Aspen Public Radio's Non-Proift in the Spotlight.
