Valley Roundup - November 7th, 2014

Nov 7, 2014

Welcome to Valley Roundup, a review of the top news stories in the valley in the past week.

This week you went to the polls, we take a look at some of the key races – what they mean and what could be the path forward for development and the future of Snowmass’s Base Village.

In non-election news, the Aspen Airport has a new director and our panel will give him some advice.

Speaking of travel, this summer was the best for tourism in the history of the State of Colorado and this winter, into 2015, could top that. We’ll chat about the pluses and minuses of the busy seasons.

And on the Download, you’ve heard of tweeting and facebooking – we’ll introduce you to an Aspen bartender and entrepreneur who wants the term “soapboxing” to be just as ubiquitous.  

Joining us this week are Carolyn Sackariason, Editor of the Aspen Daily News, Randy Essex, Editor of the Glenwood Post Independent and Andy Stone, former editor of and now columnist for the Aspen Times.

On the show this week:
