Marci Krivonen

Reporter

Originally from Montana, Marci grew up near the mountains and can't get enough of them. She began in broadcasting in Missoula, Montana where she anchored Montana Public Radio's local Evening Edition news program. She then picked up a camera and tripod and worked for Missoula's local CBS television station as a reporter. Shortly after that, she returned to radio and became the Assistant News Director at a radio station in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Marci began at Aspen Public Radio in 2007 as the station's morning host and reporter. Although you can occasionally hear Marci in the mornings, she is now quite content to be sleeping in and reporting all day. When not at the station, Marci is on her road bike, meeting people, or skiing.

Professional snow sports athletes have started their competitive season and many are traveling from race to race. For most, the cost of competing can be as challenging as defeating their opponents. Nordic ski racer Noah Hoffman and Nordic Combined athlete Michael Ward talked about the expense during a recent visit to Aspen Public Radio. They were preparing for a fundraiser in Aspen and spoke with Aspen Public Radio's Marci Krivonen.

Artist James Surls’ sculpture “Sewing the Future” was installed in Carbondale Thursday. It took more than a hour to truck in different parts of the sculpture, stand them up and bolt them down in the middle of the Highway 133 roundabout. Aspen Public Radio’s Marci Krivonen has more.

People began gathering around the roundabout early in the morning, when it was still chilly. Carbondale resident Noah Davis was bundled up and handing out doughnuts. He says he’s excited to see the sculpture go up.

Good afternoon and welcome to Mountain Edition.

Mother Nature delivered enough snow recently to crank up the lifts on Aspen Mountain...for an early opening.

On Thursday a 20 foot tall bronze and steel sculpture was installed in the middle of Carbondale’s new roundabout on Highway 133. The sculpture, called “Sewing the Future” was created by Carbondale resident and internationally recognized artist James Surls. I spoke with him about the sculpture earlier this week.

Five applicants wanting to occupy space in the Old Power House building in Aspen will move onto the next round of review. Aspen City Council looked over recommendations Tuesday night from a committee charged with reviewing the proposals. The City-owned building used to house the Aspen Art Museum. 

The building’s attractive because of it’s location and potentially it’s price. The Aspen Art Museum paid $1 a year to occupy the space alongside the Roaring Fork River.
