Colorado has lots of potential when it comes to community voices and topics for innovative stories. At Colorado Public Radio, we’ve had recent success with several projects including On Something, our podcast about marijuana legalization, which found a national audience. We’re looking for producers who will help us reach new audiences around the country and tell compelling stories in news, culture and music.
