Publisher’s Letter: A Picture Can Say a Thousand Words

A little while back, my new friend Sue over at Pirate radio put a picture of her reading North Forty News on the radio station’s social media page.

It was an honor to see another local media company being so supportive of what I have worked so hard to keep going over the years. She pitched our subscription program and said it was so good to have a “real newspaper.”

Sue is a kind person. Her heart is steadfast! If you haven’t heard her morning radio show on the pirate – 93.5 FM in Fort Collins, be sure to listen. The show is unique and fun, and it mixes oldies with humor, birthdays, and a warm down-home feeling.

I got introduced to Sue through my other friend Nancy at Sanderosa Art Gallery. Nancy was a guest on the Pirate’s morning show and told Sue that she needed to get North forty as a guest. When I showed up at the studio, I was pleasantly surprised at the efficiency and cleanliness of the radio studio. I have seen many radio studios over the years, and this one screamed PRO.

To make a long story short, Sue invited me to do radio news updates every weekday morning. I’m a very busy person. Getting me to commit to something like that is a tall order. But I can say, after a whole month of updates with very few issues, we have something going!

All this leads me to say; that I enjoy seeing North Forty News at work in the communities we serve. Please send us a picture of you reading North Forty News! My team and I love “fan mail.” It lifts our spirits and keeps us energized. Our readers’ support, on every level, helps keep the only regional weekly in Northern Colorado going and growing!
