FOURMILE CANYON FIRE BECOMES PERSONAL FOR REPORTER ZACHARY BARR

The home of CPR Reporter Zachary Barr's mother, Linda, was threatened by the fire west of Boulder. Her house is now safe, and so is she, but at the time she was uncertain about what she would find upon returning. Zachary interviewed Linda about her evacuation, adding a personal side to Colorado Public Radio's coverage of the fire.

Zachary pursued a career in radio because of his appreciation of sound and the day-to-day process of telling stories. “As a listener, I like how sound gets inside you and stirs you up, making you feel the story. As a reporter, I like the mix of interviewing, writing, and producing that goes into each finished piece.” Read Zachary's bio on CPR.org.
