Radio report on Koch story reaches millions
A radio version of the article "Wizards of Oil: How the Koch brothers influence environmental politics," written by Troy Hooper for The Colorado Independent and the American Independent News Network, has been broadcast on more than 460 radio stations in more than 30 states.
The Public News Service's Kathleen Ryan produced the radio report in two parts, which hit the air waves Monday and Tuesday. Ryan interviewed Hooper about Koch Industries Inc. and Oxbow Carbon & Mineral Holdings and the campaign contributions they have made to Colorado's congressional delegation and other key members of the House.
Ryan's reports were picked up by Clear Channel and others.
KBCO, KHOW and KBPI were among the Denver area radio stations that aired the reports. The majority of the stations that aired the story do not report audience numbers, "but just counting the ones who shared that information, the story was heard by well over two million people," according to Colorado Independent Editor Scot Kersgaard.
Additionally, Aspen Public Radio separately interviewed Hooper about his research on the Koch brothers for a report that aired in the Roaring Fork Valley this week.
Hooper is also scheduled to appear live on Ed Fallon's talk show "Fallon Forum" on Tuesday at 6 p.m. (MST).
In addition to covering Congress and how it affects the environment for The Colorado Independent, Hooper is a co-founder and editor of Real Aspen and contributes to newspapers, magazines and websites from coast to coast.
