Aspen Public Radio’s environment reporter Elizabeth Stewart-Severy explained why she’s so passionate about supporting public media.

“When I listen to Aspen Public Radio, I always know I will learn something valuable and interesting. I love hearing straight from the source, and I know that I can trust APR to bring accurate, thorough reports on topics that matter,” she said. “We all have a civic responsibility to be well-informed, and APR helps me to negotiate and understand charged topics. I believe deeply in the role that journalists play in keeping our community engaged and educated, in uniting us and making us all more interesting. Aspen Public Radio makes me smarter, and that’s really why I listen to and support APR.”

She has spent her entire life playing in the mountains and rivers around Aspen, and is thrilled to be reporting about all things environmental in this special place. She attended the University of Colorado with a Boettcher Scholarship, and graduated as the top student from the School of Journalism in 2006. Her lifelong love of hockey lead to a stint working for the Colorado Avalanche, and she still plays in local leagues and coaches the Aspen Junior Hockey U-19 girls.
