Last year, we had the pleasure of meeting Donald Montgomery, a veteran of the 10th Mountain Division, a Colorado College alumnus, and one of the student broadcasters for KRCC in the mid-1950s shortly after the station was set up on campus by “Chief” Tyree. Now in his eighties, Montgomery went on to work as a field engineer on the Nike anti-aircraft systems for Western Electric and then went on to RCA and, ultimately, to the Pentagon. Surprisingly, perhaps, he credits much of his success to the folks who took him under their wings at KRCC.

If KRCC has changed your life for the better, please consider becoming a new member, renewing your membership, or inviting a friend to join.

Thank you!
