Best New Denver Radio Station -- Public (2005)

KGNU-Denver

Of course, some lefties feel the kind of programming that dominates AM 760 isn't liberal enough, which explains why KGNU has thrived in Boulder for so long -- and without much of a Denver audience, since KGNU's signal had trouble reaching very far into the city. The solution came when KGNU purchased KJME/1390 AM, for $4.1 million. That's a hefty investment for a grassroots organization, but for residents of the Mile High City who've always wanted to experience KGNU's eclectic and adventurous music-and-information lineup, the results have been well worth it.
