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.
Thank you to everyone who participated in this week's pledge drive by donating an item, making a pledge, answering phones, inputting data, saying nice things about KPCW on and off the air and generally letting us know KPCW is an important part of your life.
Have a safe and wonderful Miners Day weekend!
(And remember the liquor stores are closed Monday!)
KPCW runs its summer pledge drive from Monday morning at 7:00 AM and doesn't close until Friday night at 6:00 PM. In between, we'll give away more than 2,500 gift certificate, coupons and items from local and regional businesses as thank you premiums for your donation.
Did you know that it was considered bad luck for a woman to work underground in the mines? This is Hope Woodside with your weekly Park City History Bit. It wasn’t until 1974 that the first woman worked in a Park City mine, and the one who led the way was Shelley Christiansen, hired to operate a hoist 1,500 feet below the surface.
