On this week's Local Motion we are showcasing our news team.

Patricia Naft, the voice of KVNF's morning regional newscast, hosts the program that features six original stories by our news director Laura Palmisano and news producer Jake Ryan.

In this episode, Laura reports from the Hotchkiss Sheepdog Trials, an EPA meeting about water issues, and  a Paonia town council meeting that saw debate over retail marijuana.

Jake Ryan tells us about Pioneer Days, the attitudes over health impacts from fracking sites, and the annual Olathe Sweet Corn Festival

We also hear from reporters across the state who bring us pertinent stories.  KUNC's Luke Runyon tells us about mutton busting, and Bente Birkeland at the state capital talks about the politics of fracking. 

To hear more from the news team listen to our regional newscast Monday-Friday at 8 a.m. and 5:50 p.m.
