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.
