Thank you, readers! The Spreading the News Campaign came to a successful conclusion Dec. 31, 2002. Your generous contributions have provided a stunning $1.36 million to support High Country News’ new media and intern programs.

With your help, we’re reaching millions of Westerners: Radio High Country News, our weekly half-hour show, is now broadcast on 31 stations in 10 states;, our newly redesigned Web site, receives more than a million visitors each year; Writers on the Range, our syndicated column service, is published in 78 newspapers across the West; and High Country News Service provides in-depth news stories to dozens of papers regionwide. At the same time, the High Country News Intern Program brings six aspiring journalists to Paonia each year for a crash course in environmental journalism.

None of this would have been possible without your support. Thank you for helping to keep this important dialogue — and this vibrant Western institution — alive and kicking.
