How on Earth wins 2011 Colorado Broadcasters Award in Excellence


How On Earth, the KGNU science show, is an award-winning half-hour radio magazine featuring short stories about the recent news in science, plus live interviews and special features. How On Earth is broadcast every Tuesday morning at 8:35am on 88.5 FM and 1390 AM, KGNU Boulder-Denver community radio. We also have a podcast feed, and we post the full audio of each show to the website.

Since its inception in 1992, How on Earth has focused on research being done either in our region or by scientists from our region. We also have interviews with authors whose books are relevant on a regional, national, or global level. Topics for the show are broadly defined: science, technology, the environment, wildlife management and conservation, adventures in nature, energy, land management, wilderness, science and public policy, health and medicine…

Our production team is a group of volunteers who have a curiosity or passion for science, and in some cases a professional background in the sciences. How On Earth is produced at the studios of KGNU Boulder-Denver, an independent, non-commercial community radio station. KGNU relies on listener support and the efforts of volunteers to bring you innovative local programming like How On Earth. Please visit kgnu.org to learn how you can get involved.

We’re working hard on our next show, and we can always use more ideas. Do you have a suggestion for a Colorado story that we should be covering on How On Earth? Visit our Contact page to find all the ways of getting in touch with us.
