Colorado on NPR's bucket list

National Public Radio has told a couple of prominent national stories through a Colorado prism in recent days. Last week, the service offered "News For Sale?," a report about the growing movement to charge for online information products that had previously been available for free -- and among those interviewed were Denver-based MediaNews executive Jody Lodovic, commenting on a plan sketched in detail by MediaNews CEO Dean Singleton in an extensive Q&A, as well as two other recent Westword interview subjects: INDenver Times entrepreneur Kevin Preblud and David Milstead, a former INDenver Times contributor who's joined another Times expat, Steve Foster, in a new project dubbed the Rocky Mountain Independent. And today, NPR's Morning Edition is featuring "Water Wars Out West," which pivots on Colorado's new willingness to let residents such as Boulder's Karl Hanzel collect rain and snow runoff at their residences, as opposed to fining them for doing so. Colorado is clearly ready for its closeup -- or at least the radio equivalent.
