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.
Do you think Park City would be as popular as it is today if it still took four hours to get here?
This is Bill Redeker with your weekly Park City History Bit.
In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, horse-drawn stagecoaches were frequently running up and down the canyon between Salt Lake City and Park City. “Stagecoaches” got their name from the different stages the drivers stopped at to change out tired horses. The four-hour trip through the canyon required four stops.
Listeners from around the county shared their photos of the Rockport Estate fire with KPCW through email, text messages and social media. The slide show above shows some of the ones we received by Tuesday night.
If you're thinking that the website looks a little different today - you are correct!
KPCW has switched over to a new format created and supported by NPR. The new site will have m0re functions - such as a live program schedule and listening capabilities for all brands of mobile devices - to go along with the great new look.
We'll miss some parts of the old website - award-winning website - for sure, and improvements will continue as the weeks, months and years go on.
