Dedication pays off

When the “new” KSNO came to the valley, they brought with them a commitment to provide comprehensive local news coverage. Over this past weekend, this commitment has borne fruit during the events that have riveted the residents of and visitors to the Roaring Fork Valley.

The news coverage of the wildfires in Glenwood Springs provided by KSNO, through its news director, Scott Bayens, has been outstanding. The frequent reports have provided accurate, up-to-date information not available through any other source.

For example, KSNO accurately reported on Sunday morning that I-70 eastbound was open in Glenwood Springs at the same time that the Colorado State Police Communications Office was mistakenly informing callers that I-70 was closed in both directions from Wolcott to Rifle.

By dedicating its resources to reporting on these wildfires and by having Scott Bayens in Glenwood Springs virtually around the clock, KSNO is providing a valuable service to our community, supplying informative reports which have served to limit the misinformation that can be so prevalent in chaotic situations such as this one.

Thank you, Scott Bayens and KSNO.
