Community Radio for Northern Colorado
Bringing news and storytelling to Colorado’s Front Range, mountain and Eastern Plains communities.
KUNC is a community-licensed public radio station, operated by Community Radio for Northern Colorado, Inc., a 501 (c) 3, Colorado non-profit organization. CRNC came into existence in the winter of 2001 when a group of community volunteers raised $2 million in 20 days to purchase KUNC's license from the University of Northern Colorado and preserve the station's independent voice.
Instrumental in the fundraising campaign were many members of the KUNC listening community, including the KUNC Advisory Council. The Council had existed for many years providing community reaction and guidance to the station staff.
Following the sale of the station to the community group, a Board of Directors was elected which oversees the operation of the station. The KUNC Community Advisory Council continues to provide community insights to the staff in matters of programming, community service and fundraising.
