    MindMind SoulSoulCPR provides in-depth news and information for people who value life-long learning. Whether its national or global coverage from NPR and the BBC, regional reporting, thoughtful interviews on Colorado Matters, or reaching out through the Public Insight Network, CPR News engages people each day through the exploration of complex issues and the world around us.

    COLORADO COVERAGE

    Endorsements from leading community foundations in Colorado have enabled CPR to substantially increase dedicated beat reporting on critical issues. The Colorado Health Foundation has funded

    CPRs health reporter position since 2007, and the Gates Family Foundation and The Piton Foundation joined forces in 2011 to back CPRs education reporter position.

    In January, 2013, Colorado Public Radio received a three-year $900,000 grant from the

    Bonfils-Stanton Foundation to fund CPRs first compre-hensive multi-media news bureau covering the arts. Coverage will range from previews and feature stories about major cultural and arts organizations, to funding for the arts. Reviews, inter-views, audio and video, and events will all be part of the multi-media digital presence.

    AWARDS

    Each year, CPR is recognized for excellence in journalism. In the past year, CPR News received a total of 15 local, regional and national journal- ism awards from respected media institutions, including Edward R. Murrow, National Education Reporting, Colorado

    Broadcasters Association, National Headliner, Colorado Associated Press Broadcasters Association, and the Public Radio News Directors In- corporated. Three awards acknowledged outstanding reporting in daily newscasts, coverage of the Aurora theater shooting, the Waldo Canyon fire and a report on Colorados ethics commission. CPRs education coverage received five awards alone.

    LOOKING AHEAD

    There has never been a more exciting time for CPR to help strengthen Colorados place in the world and contribute to a more informed and enlightened society.

    OPEN AIR

    When Colorado Public Radio launched OpenAir in the fall of 2011, the goal was a natu-ral extension of our mission: provide a thoughtful, curated new-music experience, guidedby knowledgeable hosts and

    the spirit of Colorados thriving music scene.

    The enthusiasm and cama- raderie that embraced OpenAir during its first full year demonstrated the momentum behind creating a home for Colorados new music culture. By collaborat-ing with talented artists and leaders in the local music community, OpenAir expand- ed horizons through live, one-of-a-kind broadcasts, connecting online, meeting face-to-face at events, and hosting over 140 performances in our state-of-the-art CPR Performance Studio.

    CPR CLASSICAL

    CPR has a long history and connection with the Colorado classical music community. This year marked the 10-year anniversary of Colorado Spotlight and a decade of partnering with organizations like the Colorado Symphony, Opera Colorado, Central City Opera, Bravo! Vail, the

    Colorado Music Festival and the Aspen Music Festival. More than 400 artists have visited the CPR Performance Studio, sharing intimate performances and insight into the repertoire.
