The Boise River.

Time for the Boise River Boogie. No, it’s not a dance, it’s a duathlon. And it’s a fundraiser to help keep the river in good shape. Not that long ago, slaughterhouses in Garden City made the river run red. Raw sewage was dumped directly in the river. And the habitat suffered. Over time, valley residents began to clean up the river. Over the last eight years, the Boise River Enhancement Network has been working to keep the waterway healthy.

Hi! I’m Gemma Gaudette, the host of the award-winning show, Idaho Matters. During the day you’ll find me researching and writing about all the fascinating topics we tackle on our show. And of course, at noon, each weekday you’ll find me live behind the microphone as Idaho Matters airs.
As Senior Producer of our live daily talk show Idaho Matters, I’m able to indulge my love of storytelling and share all kinds of information (I was probably a Town Crier in a past life!). My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
