Monika came on board with KPCW in 2011 as a sales associate in Underwriting and Fundraising, but that was after nine years as a volunteer DJ, and most of them as a co-host of the KPCW Classifieds Show.
We couldn't have the unique pledge drives we do without the TREMENDOUS support of our business community. Sometimes it's just a quick phone call asking, "You in?" and sometimes it's a longer conversation discussing times, exposure and response. Whatever length of the initial conversation, everyone here at KPCW is so grateful for the businesses, non-profit organizations and individuals who allow our thanks you gifts to be something different from a tote bag or coffee mug.
Please help us thank these great businesses that donated to this summer's pledge drive:
Take a photo of water being wasted outdoors, along with why it’s wasteful and how to be more water-wise. Our judges will pick one winner every week, who will get a prize of passes or gift certificates. 10 winners over the summer and one cash prize for the grand prize at the end of summer. All the rules and information here.
This week, KPCW is proud to announce that Michal Biskup is the winner of the KPCW Water Waste Contest.
Twelve-year-old Michal found his entry while on his way to a school sport:
"I took this photo while I was biking to soccer practice, when I passed Ecker Hill Middle School, I noticed that the sprinklers were set up so that they watered the concrete more than the grass. this is a problem because less water got to the plants and more got to the concrete, where it would evaporate or go into a sewer.
An anonymous phone call came in to the Park City Police Easter Sunday evening, reporting a bomb threat targeting the upper Main Street area. According to Police Chief Wade Carpenter, police the immediate area threatened reached from approximately 350 Main Street to the top of the street. The caller only gave a general location, Carpenter added, and efforts focused on the area around Wasatch Brew Pub and Treasure Mountain Inn.
Erin Whiteley, Greg Whiteley and Ted Dintersmith stopped by the KPCW studios today and we trapped them for a super quick interview. They'll be back on Wednesday for a more in-depth interview on The Sundance Reel with Leslie Thatcher.
