Valley Roundup

Fridays at 3:30pm and Sundays at 12:30pm

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 includes a weekly feature from the digital space.  APR Digital Content Manager Rob St. Mary examines what’s trending on social media, searching the web for interesting things you might have missed and how you can get involved.    

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

Hosted by APR News Director Roger Adams, guests include editors and reporters
from The Aspen Daily News, The Aspen Times, The Glenwood Springs Post
Independent and others.
