As the arts and entertainment editor, Geiger provides the community with details on local happenings including festivals, live music and other events.

Jefferson kindled his passion for storytelling at Colorado State University in Fort Collins as the senior entertainment reporter for their student newspaper, the Rocky Mountain Collegian, while earning a bachelor’s degree in journalism. Originally from Pennsylvania, he and his family moved to Alamosa over a decade ago to embrace the mountain lifestyle. There, Geiger worked first as a freelance video game journalist for ZAM and GameSpot, and then as a reporter and award-winning photographer for the Valley Courier.
