Mountain Edition

Mountain Edition is Aspen Public Radio's weekly newsmagazine. The weekly, thirty-minute show airs Thurdays at 3:30 p.m., just before NPR's All Things Considered. The show focuses on news, analysis and commentary about Aspen and the Roaring Fork Valley. Each week, the Aspen Public Radio news department examines the most significant issues and events affecting us in the valley. The program includes news stories and features reported by APR reporters and contributors. The show presents moderated analysis of the news from guests and regular segments focused on the arts, music and profiles of people and events of interest to residents of the Roaring Fork Valley.
