Every day at Rocky Mountain Public Media, we share stories and experiences that celebrate the diversity of what it means to be a Coloradan.
Your voice enables us to explore issues and interests that set a course for creating a Colorado where everyone feels seen and heard.
We’d like to check in with you more often to hear your thoughts and share community responses that help us better understand how our efforts make a positive impact in people’s lives.
Finding Common Ground
Our team put together a collection of their most inspiring responses from RMPM stories, performances and programs. Hear what our audiences have to say about their experiences.
You may support the work we do because you have personal experience and trust in the power of public media to illuminate the bigger picture and connect people in ways that build empathy and understanding.
We commit to upholding your trust by offering authentic, community-responsive content in all we do through Rocky Mountain PBS, KUVO JAZZ 89.3, and THE DROP 104.7.
“My values brought me here. RMPM is a values organization. One reason that keeps me coming back to public radio is the fact that it’s community driven, not dollar driven.”
-DJ Bella Scratch
KUVO JAZZ’s Carlos Lando launched The Morning Set earlier this year. Each weekday, listeners hear stories behind the music with My Back Pages, learn about community and national events, and get to know local chefs featured in a weekly Eats & Beats segment.
KUVO JAZZ is back in full swing with live jazz music in our new Bonfils-Stanton Foundation Performance Studio, Jazz Odyssey Presents and Live at the Vineyards. We also support and broadcast live from other community events such as City Park Jazz, Five Points Jazz Festival, and many more.
“It goes beyond words, the value of this station”

The Drop 104.7
Therapy Thursday is a weekly program on THE DROP that offers insights on proactively addressing mental health and overcoming barriers to treatment and services.
Hosts Amerykah Jones and SugaBear drive a mission of access to prevention services for all, creating a safe space for listeners to call, text, or email mental health professionals and share in on-air discussions.
If you or someone you know is struggling or in crisis, help is available. Call or text 988 or chat 988lifeline.org.
“Your topics on mental health continue to be an asset to us because it is one of the more common reasons women are incarcerated. Thank you for everything that you contribute on the airways that keep those in our position who sometimes feel forgotten inspired to keep moving and make it to the other side!”
-LeAndra, Denver Women’s Correctional Facility

Even though mobile homes are one of the most affordable options in Colorado, it’s coming at a high cost. Owners are selling the land from underneath some homes, pricing people out and forcing them to leave.
Rocky Mountain PBS recently investigated the sale of local mobile home parks, the impacts of the people who live there, and the options people have to own both their homes and the land underneath them.
“This program was so informative and well done. I will look at these parks and the people who live in them in a different way from now on. Thank you!”
