KVNF is part of Rocky Mountain Community Radio, a 16-member coalition of community radio stations in Colorado, Utah, and New Mexico that share content. 

Last week, KVNF participated in a the RMCR Conference in Carbondale hosted by community radio station KDNK. 

As part of the conference, KVNF’s Laura Palmisano, RMCR's Bente Birkland, and KUNC’s Brian Larson, talked about the nitty-gritty of reporting and the effort and hurdles that aren’t heard on the radio. The program was hosted by KDNK News Director January Jones.
