About Public Broadcasting
The Gay & Lesbian Fund supports public radio and television programming throughout Colorado because it entertains, informs, and inspires thoughtful discussion about issues facing us as Coloradans. We proudly support stations located in cities like Durango, Colorado Springs, Grand Junction, and Greeley.
We invested $125,000 in 16 Colorado nonprofit organizations in our Public Broadcasting program area in 2010. The public broadcasting stations we supported ranged from KRCC Radio at Colorado College and KUNC Community Radio in Northern Colorado to Rocky Mountain PBS and Colorado Public Television.
The story above focuses on KAFM Community Radio in Grand Junction, one of our 2010 Public Broadcasting grantees. KAFM 88.1 reaches more than 130,000 listeners weekly across western Colorado and online. The volunteer-operated station strives to not only provide music programming that is diverse and entertaining, but also local news that is reflective of all people in the Grand Junction community, creating dialogue around shared values and common goals.
