Hosted by Randy Barton, The Local View is a program featuring local news, interviews, live music and local event information.


Born and raised in Utah, Randy has been a fixture in Park City for more decades than he would like to admit. He has started and handed off various local institutions, including Mountain Town Stages (now Mountain Town Music), Park City Performers (now The Egyptian Theatre) and the restaurant chain Stone Cutters (still Stone Cutters).

Randy was also formerly at KPCW as a music DJ and returned in 2005 to afternoon drive spot, where he advocates all things local. He has a soft spot for entertainers and features local musicians, and performers on the road who are traveling into Summit County.
