RBC | This week we are thrilled to announce a new addition to our editorial staff. Lucas Turner, 26, brings a wealth of new skills to the HT.

A 2012 graduate of Meeker High School, Turner attended Colorado Mountain College’s Isaacson School of New Media in Glenwood Springs, graduating in 2015. During his time at CMC he became manager of the school’s FM radio station, and shortly after graduating was asked to be an adjunct professor at the school. Most recently, he worked as news director for KDNK public radio in Carbondale, earning two Murrow Awards this year as well as two awards from the Colorado Broadcasting Association. He’s also the owner of LevelHead Audio, a podcasting production company. 

Turner is married to Haley (McCrary) Turner, whose paternal great-grandmother, Edna Mae Gould, was a longtime Meeker hairdresser. Haley is a stylist in Glenwood Springs. They have an 18-month-old son, Jackson (pictured above with Lucas), and make their home in Rifle.
