Kori Stanton

Producer/Host

Kori is a Paonia native and grew up on the Western Slope. A strong sense of ‘Community’ was instilled from the very beginning as her father, Campbell Stanton, is the orginal Founder of KVNF.  At the age of 11, Kori was awarded the opportunity to attend a Summer Enrichment Program at the University of Northern Colorado where she learned how to shoot film on her mother’s 35mm camera and darkroom photography. Little did she know that these were the very beginnings of her love and passion for photography and storytelling. In 2004 Kori moved to Denver where she continued her photography career. In 2006, Kori was ready for a bigger challenge and moved to Los Angeles. With her extensive background in photography, Kori landed a job at Quixote Studios. Over the next ten years she worked on numerous feature and short films, produced community driven events, and shot fashion photography and promo vidoes for Hautelook & Nordstrom.

In 2016, Kori moved back to Paonia to be closer to her family and breathe in clean mountain air. Within a few months of moving back to her roots, Kori signed up for KVNF's DJ training with then Program Director, Ali Lightfoot. With Kori's production background, storytelling and editing skills she was a great fit for all things production. Kori now produces all of the Underwriting and Promos heard on KVNF. Kori also hosts and produces the weekly show 'Talkin Music' and she supports the News department by producing agricultural and public affairs stories for 'Local Motion'. In addition to seeing her around the station you can hear her music show on Thursday mornings on "The Sweet Sound". When she's not at KVNF you can find Kori working on her family’s lavender farm on Garvin Mesa where the original KVNF radio station still stands.

Nitrogen is the basis of fertility. It’s the base of the amino acids that make up our DNA and the proteins in our bodies. Nitrogen is a common limiting nutrient in nature, and agriculture, meaning that naturally it is in the shortest supply and limits growth.

Carbon Cycle Energy (C2e)

The excessive burning of fossil fuels and mismanagement of forests and soils have released vast amounts of terrestrial and fossil carbon into the atmosphere throwing the global carbon cycle, that underpins life as we know it, out of the balance. But there are ways we can help rebalance the cycle.  Of course we have to stop burning so many fossil fuels. We can also pull the excess carbon out of the atmosphere and give it back to the soil.  Unlike more carbon in the atmosphere, more carbon in the soil is good for us. It makes soil healthy! Healthy soil makes healthy food and that's good for everyone.

In mid September 2020 the biggest cold snap in the history of the western united states occurred in southwest Colorado. Just a few weeks earlier raging wildfires in California and Oregon forced the early migration of thousands of songbirds. Stressed from early migration, underfed and experiencing the sudden cold, thousands of birds died and many many more panicked.

In a drying landscape one thing we can do to halt desertification is to restore small water cycles. What does that mean? It means keeping the water that does fall or comes down through irrigation and streams in local circulation. There are many ways to do this through the way we graze animals, to keeping our ditch water above ground, planting and caring for trees, and restoring soil health. The simple global principal at work here is that in the biosphere, water follows carbon. Where there is more carbon there will be more water.

"Music is my life partner" says singer-songwriter Xanthe Alexis in an interview with KVNF's Kori Stanton.

The way we manage water has largely been focused on quantity and quality. This has led to a scarcity mentality where we are faced with there not being “enough” water immediately available. When we step back and look at the way water moves throughout the planet-in large and small water cycles- we can begin to see that all the water there is, is still there.

While we can't control the weather, we can and do have dramatic impacts on our climate and environment. New science is showing that it is possible to attract water back into our landscapes and get ahead of catastrophic wildfires. When it comes to managing our lands and mitigating the impacts of weather, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

There is a new season in the west: fire season! We have always had wild fire in our landscapes but fires are now coming much earlier, burning hotter and often leaving catastrophic impacts. Like all living systems, it's not just one thing, but an interconnected and compounding set of environmental and social issues that are causing these fires to be so much worse than they were. 

Kori Stanton

Snowpack was good in winter 2019/2020 so why did our rivers get low so early? The snow melted early and extraordinarily quickly this spring. This along with a combination of effects from a rapidly changing climate are colliding to cause dramatic shifts in how water interacts with our landscape.

Water is life. It is what makes life possible on Earth and here in the west we are very vulnerable to how much water we get or don't get. Our area is in what scientists call a “megadrought”; a period of drought that extends for over a decade. And this one is the longest on record.
