Valley Roundup - January 10th, 2014

Jan 10, 2014

Curtis Wackerle and Andy Stone join us to talk about the news this week in Aspen.  It was a week that began in tragedy with the crash of a private jet onto the runway at Aspen’s airport.

Also this week, Aspen gave the go ahead for the first retail marijuana shop in town.  Carbondale got the jump on Aspen, though. Its first pot shop will open very soon.

Also today, Aspen prepares for the X Games.

And on the Download with Rob St. Mary we’ll deconstruct how the internet and social media – especially Twitter – played a big role in the international news coverage of the plane crash here.
