KJAC is a community-licensed public radio station, sister station of KUNC, operated by Community Radio for Northern Colorado, Inc., a 501 (c) 3, Colorado non-profit organization. CRNC came into existence in the winter of 2001 when a group of community volunteers raised $2 million in 20 days to purchase KUNC’s license from the University of Northern Colorado and preserve the station’s independent voice.
Following the sale of the station to the community group, a Board of Directors was elected which oversees the operation of the station. The Community Advisory Council continues to provide community insights to the staff in matters of programming, community service and fundraising.
KJAC (The Colorado Sound) launched on February 29, 2016.
Both the Board of Directors and the Advisory Council welcome your comments and concerns. Your remarks can be addressed to either group at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 800 443 5862.
