Lee-Ann Hill

Lee-Ann Hill loves rivers and music.  She is the Program Coordinator of Dolores River Boating Advocates (DRBA), and has a little farm in Mancos where she has discovered that the main problem with farming is that it interferes with her river season (and there's that water shortage thing, too, which impacts both…).  Though inherently afraid of talking on the air, she inherited "The River Trip" from her DRBA predecessor and loves the mystery of where the next show will go, like a bend in the river.  A Colorado native, and raised on the West Slope, she is passionate about our Western Landscapes and their unique cultural heritage, and enjoys working to protect them.
