KGNU is a beacon of local, community-supported radio in the Front Range area, and it hosts our Study Circle’s monthly Co-op Power Hour show. KGNU’s model has a lot in common with cooperative enterprise. We’ll be joined by Tim Russo, a veteran of community radio networks in Central America who recently joined KGNU as station manager.

Co-op Power Hour: Employee Ownership w/ Rep. Jared Polis
August 24, 6pm on KGNU 88.5 FM
This month on the radio, hear our interview with Congressman Jared Polis, who represents Colorado’s second district, and has been a leader in advancing legislation for employee ownership in Washington. He is also a leading contender in the race to be Colorado’s next governor. We’ll also hear from Halisi Vinson of the Rocky Mountain Employee Ownership Center on the challenges of building cross-partisan consensus on shared ownership, which we should all agree on.
