Valley Roundup

Fridays at 3:30pm

In our survey of the week’s top stories, Valley Roundup brings together a panel of guest journalists who provide additional insights, analysis and context to the news. Valley Roundup goes beyond the headlines with reporters and editors discussing issues important to the Roaring Fork Valley.  These journalists are keeping an eye on local government, public utilities, the environment, the arts and much more.  On Valley Roundup each week, they’ll be in casual conversation about the stories they cover and why they matter to us.   

Valley Roundup is more than just a week-in-review – it’s your connection to your community and beyond.

Hosted by a member of the APR news team, guests include editors and reporters from The Aspen Daily News, The Aspen Times, The Glenwood Springs Post Independent, and others.  

Valley Roundup received a Colorado Broadcasters Association (CBA) Award of Excellence for Best Public Affairs Program in 2015. 

Support for Valley Roundup on Aspen Public Radio comes from Balcomb and Green, PC, a full-service law firm with offices in Glenwood Springs, Aspen, and Basalt. Learn more at www.balcombgreen.com.

Aspen is in full swing with the World Cup finals hosting the best skiers in the world for five days. And there’s been some fast skiing, which means some gnarly crashes, too.

And it’s obvious that these athletes who are flying down the mountain at 80 miles per hour aren’t in it for the money. They do it because they love it.
