CPR SPONSOR SPOTLIGHT: DENVER CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS

The Denver Center for the Performing Arts, one of CPR's Corporate Partners, underwrites because: “It enables us to have a meaningful connection with our patrons. They appreciate knowing that we are invested in the community through public radio.”

Jeff Hovorka, DCPA's media and marketing manager, chose two of his favorite people on CPR:
Charley Samson, host of “Colorado Spotlight,” because “his programs are inviting;” and NPR reporter Sylvia Poggioli, “because her reporting is direct and authentic, and I wish I could hear her speak more in Italian.”
