KVNF, A forty year old community radio station is looking for a new General Manager to lead our public media service. Located in Western Colorado, we serve seven counties with a network of two transmitters, five translators, a main studio and offices in Paonia and a satellite studio in Montrose. Our broadcast area features smaller communities that lie amid the valleys and magnificent peaks of the Rocky Mountains. Our signal reaches from Grand Mesa on the North to the San Juan Mountains on the South, and from McClure Pass on the East to the Utah border (and a little beyond) on the West.

The Main Office and operations of KVNF are located in Paonia, Colorado, in the North Fork Valley of the Gunnison River. We serve a broad community of retirees, young families, millennials, artists and entrepreneurs. The area is well known for ranching, organic farming, value-added agricultural products, vineyards and farm-to-table dining.

The local school district proudly encompasses Montessori and Waldorf options at the Elementary level as well as Public Elementary and High Schools recognized for their outstanding Academic and Athletic achievements.

Remarkable recreational activities abound as well! Aspen, Telluride, Crested Butte and Powderhorn Ski Areas are easily accessible in our beautiful winters. The surrounding National Forest and BLM lands provide many options for hiking, biking, cross country skiing, equestrian activities, river running, mushroom hunting and much more.

We are also fortunate to have a local music scene with ongoing events and visiting musicians covering everything from Rock, Bluegrass, World, Folk, Soul and Blues to Classical and Country; much like our Musical Offerings over the airwaves!
