City & Education Reporter

When it comes to Park City meetings and events, as well as education issues for the entire Summit County, Lynn Ware Peek has it covered. Joining the station in 2012, makes her the ‘cub reporter’ of the KPCW news team, but far from green. Her natural curiosity and strong roots in the community give her the advantages she needs to get the scoop on the local news.

She also co-hosts two of KPCW’s Public Affairs Hour shows, The Mountain Life on health and lifestyle on Wednesdays and Cool Science Radio, tackling science and technology  every Thursday.
