Rocky Mountain PBS parent gets $6 million grant from Buell Foundation for new HQ

DENVER BUSINESS JOURNAL - The Buell Foundation is giving the parent of Rocky Mountain PBS television and KUVO radio a $6 million "leadership" donation toward its capital campaign to raise $30 million for a new headquarters building in downtown Denver.

Accordingly, Rocky Mountain Public Media's new HQ -- to be located at 21st and Arapahoe streets -- will be named the Buell Public Media Center, the broadcaster announced.

“Colorado needs a vibrant epicenter for listening, learning and community dialogue – a place that connects the public to topics that matter to them – and we are thrilled to make this important civic investment to better serve our statewide," said Dan Ritchie, president of the Buell Foundation's Board of Trustees.

The new facility will be home to the studios, offices and production facilities of Rocky Mountain PBS' network of Colorado TV stations, including KRMA-Channel 6 in Denver, as well as KUVO, which features jazz, blues, Native American, African-American and Latino music styles.
