DENVER -- After months of development and creative brainstorming, FOX31 Denver is proud to launch our new show "#COpolitics - From The Source."
It premieres Sunday at 9 a.m. right after "Fox News Sunday." It will give Sunday mornings a thoughtful discussion of Colorado issues.
Political Reporter and Weekend Anchor Eli Stokols is host of the show which our team has taken outside the TV station into a non-studio environment. "The result is a cool, contemporary-looking program that is truly unique and different," says Vice President of News and Digital Content Ed Kosowski.
The show is designed to appeal to people who are interested in the critical issues facing Colorado, but don't find that typical coverage of those issues relates to them.
It's taped at The Source, an artisan food market in the Denver River North District. It won't always be taped there. Sometimes it will go on the road, to "the source" of where the issues are having an impact on Coloradans lives.
The idea, Eli says, is to take the show to dynamic public spaces where people are always engaging each other over meals or business meetings or whatever they're doing. This show will involve people and it will take discussions of public policy into public spaces.
This week Eli leads a discussion about marijuana, what's working and what's not with Joe Hodas, Jack Finlaw and Representative Ed Perlmutter. He also has a discussion with Representative Jared Polis about his controversial ballot measures on fracking.
