Rick Brough

Summit County Reporter

Known for getting all the facts right, as well as his distinctive sign-off, Rick covers Summit County meetings and issues. KPCW snagged him from The Park Record in the '80s, and he's been on air and covering the entire county ever since. He produces the Week In Review podcast, as well a heads the Friday Film Review team.

Rick is also a pop-culture savant (who would bury you in Trivial Pursuit), which makes him the perfect host for KPCW's weekend interview show of filmmakers, actors and critics during the Sundance Film Festival. Revealing his darker side, you can catch him every Friday afternoon with Randy Barton on The Local View discussing which celebrities passed on that week.

Park City Leadership

Participants in this year's Park City Tour say they've found a lot of elements in Boulder, Colorado to commend, emulate, or study as take-home ideas. They were a bit more skeptical of a second stop on the tour -- the town of Black Hawk, Colorado, an old mining locale that's turned to a casino economy. Rick Brough has more.

Summit Land Conservancy

The Summit Land Conservancy has reached an agreement to preserve the 158-acre Osguthorpe farm on Old Ranch Road.

Two Main Street property owners have filed suit against the new Park City ordinance limiting the number of chain stores in the area.
