Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper kicked off the first ever Colorado Wine Week in Grand Junction on Sunday. While the southwestern part of the state appears to lean towards the micro-brew, there is plenty of appreciation for fine wine. In recognition of “Colorado Wine Week”, we’ll be bringing you two interviews on Wednesday morning: the first from KWMV in Westcliffe, Colorado with Jeff Carr from Garfield Estates Winery in Palisade at 9:00; followed by Rob Rawl’s conversation with local businessman Eric Allen of the Wine Merchant.

KSUT will broadcast an interview with Colorado Senator Michael Bennet Thursday at 2:30. The Senator will join KSUT’s Rob Rawls for a conversation about the budget crisis and imminent government shutdown. We’re hoping to get his perspective on the status of funding for public broadcasting. Please join us.

Help protect funding for KSUT

Dear Friends,

Today, funding for public broadcasting is facing its greatest threat ever with budget trimming legislators determined to eliminate most, if not all, Federal financial support.  KSUT, along with most other public radio and television stations receives a critical part of its support through Congressionally-appropriated funds managed through the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB). KSUT receives 25% of its funding from CPB. Cuts, if they happen, will directly affect KSUT’s service and programming.

Over 170 Million Americans engage with public media every month. KSUT is proud to participate in the “170 Million Americans For Public Broadcasting campaign”, and we urge you to do so too. It’s an unprecedented collaboration of public radio and television stations, listeners and viewers throughout the country – all in favor of strong public media. Help us protect this critical resource.

To ensure the quality news and cultural programming you love continues to receive critical Federal support, tell Congress that public broadcasting is too important to cut.  Go to 170MillionAmericans.org and sign up today.
This informative website will keep you posted on the situation as it unfolds, and will suggest ways that you can help.

Thank you for taking action on behalf of KSUT.

This year’s beneficiary is the local chapter of Volunteers of America, the Southwest Safehouse and the Durango Community Shelter.

“Banks have money to loan,” and if they don’t, there are other options for local small businesses — that’s the message in “City Speak” a video produced by City Span 10 Access Television.  Watch the video here and see what else Durango development folks are saying. It’s not all doom and gloom!
