General Manager

Renai Bodley Miller became General Manager of KPCW in June, 2017. Previously, she was a reporter at KPCW. Renai is a 25 year veteran of the television news business.  She was a news producer in Roanoke, VA, Richmond, VA, Miami, FL, and Washington, DC before moving to Utah in 1996 to be the Executive Producer at KSTU Fox 13.  In 1999, she was promoted to Vice President/News Director.  Under Renai’s tenure, Fox 13 expanded its news coverage from 2.5 hours to 10 hours of news a day.  She retired in July, 2015, to enjoy her new home in Park City; but she couldn’t stay out of a newsroom for long.  Less than a month later she signed on with KPCW as a reporter, and less than two years later she was promoted to General Manager when Larry Warren retired.

Renai is a member of the Society of Professional Journalists, Investigative Reporters and Editors, and the Radio Television Digital News Association.  She grew up in Virginia and graduated from the University of Virginia with a degree in English Language and Literature. She was an inaugural fellow of the Carole Kneeland Project for Responsible Journalism (1998) and has been invited back several times as a speaker and attendee.  Renai has a passion for politics and was a founding board member of the Utah Debate Commission.   She considers Utah home, and enjoys playing the role of Park City tour guide for her out-of-state friends and family.

 

Voters in the South Summit School District voted down a $58.6 million bond Tuesday night.  The vote was 1,167 against the bond, and 939 for the bond.   School officials said the bond was needed to build a new high school and accommodate growth in the Kamas-based district.   If it had passed, the bond would have added $96 in taxes a year per $100,000 value of a home in the district.  School Superintendent Shad Sorenson told KPCW in October that if the bond failed, the district would have to consider portable classrooms or year-round schools. 

In a closely contested mayoral race, Park City chose city councilman Andy Beerman over former mayor Dana Williams.  Beerman got 1,318 votes to Williams' 1,100.    Tim Henney and Steve Joyce won seats on Park City's city council.

Tuesday night Wasatch County voters elected two female mayors, and helped replace Congressman Jason Chaffetz with another Republican.  Kelleen Potter was elected Heber City mayor, defeating incumbent Alan McDonald.  And Celeste Johnson was elected mayor of Midway, defeating incumbent Colleen Bonner.   

In Heber City's city council race, Heidi Franco won re-election.  Wayne Hardman also won. 

In the Third District Congressional race, John Curtis, Provo's mayor, soundly defeated democrat Kathie Allen.

Park City voters elected a new mayor Tuesday night.  City Councilman Andy Beerman defeated Dana Williams by more than 200 votes, with 1,318 votes to Williams' 1,100.   Beerman was in his second term on council.  He had run for Mayor in 2014, but lost to Jack Thomas.  Williams was Park City's mayor from 2002 - 2014.  

In an interview with KPCW Tuesday night, Beerman said he thought his victory meant that voters think the city is on the right track.  He also said he will continue to work towards what he calls a "complete community" that contains more affordable housing.
