Colorado Independent Koch story gains national radio play
The Colorado Independent’s story Monday on the Koch brothers influence in environmental politics has gone viral in a radio version produced by Kathleen Ryan for Public News Service.
Ryan interviewed Colorado Independent reporter Troy Hooper for her report, which she broke into two segments, which ran Monday and Tuesday of this week.
She said she will know by the end of the week how many stations carried the stories and how big the total audience was. Ryan said that at least 37 radio stations in Colorado ran Monday’s story, with a total audience of about 590,000 people. As of this morning, a similar number of Colorado stations had aired part two of the story.
Additionally, Clear Channel Communications picked up the stories both days for distribution to 460 radio stations nationally. Ryan said at least 10 stations in Oregon ran Monday’s story, with a combined audience of about 159,000 people.
Hooper was also interviewed on Aspen’s public radio station, KJAX.
