The Team

Denver Open Media is a constituent-led community media organization where the producer-members and viewers have as much ownership over the operation as anyone. Thus, DOM has no "staff," but is a project, facilitated by the staff of a separate nonprofit organization, the Open Media Foundation.

That said, these are the faces to know if you need any help or answers to any questions.


Allen Matthews

After 2 years of amazing work for a fantastic station Allen said goodbye to his radio baby in hopes of greener pastures only to find a barren couple of years of roadie work and video projects. Then, Allen’s friends gave him an opportunity to get back on air, so with a humble and grateful heart he hit the ground running with The Sports Entertainment Network on Denver Open Media doing his Colorado local show We-Rock 303!

You can hear Allen Matthews every Wednesday from 4-6 PM hosting We-Rock 303 on 92.9 FM and 89.3 HD3 broadcasted by Denver Open Media.
