Park City Rotary Club

The Park City Rotary Club on Tuesday gave its Professional Citizen of the Year Award to one of KPCW's own - the woman who has been waking up the town for 21 years. The honor went to Leslie Thatcher, KPCW News Director, lead news anchor and longtime morning program host. Rick Brough has more.

After nearly 36 years, KPCW changed its position on the radio dial - a little anyway. Wednesday we celebrated, since KPCW changed from 91.9 tp 01.7. Rick Brough has more.

KPCW, Park City’s community radio station since 1980, began its long awaited power upgrade and signal move. The station’s main transmitter site on Quarry Mountain will increase its power output from 250 watts to 1,800 watts, giving it a wider reach with a stereo signal.

In conjunction with the power upgrade, KPCW also plans to move down the dial from 91.9 FM to 91.7 FM. The station expects that frequency move to take place June 1, pending FCC approval of the signal testing, which will begin as soon as a new transmitter is installed.

Park City's EpicPromise Chairs for Charity event takes place at the Kimball Art Center December 8 – 10. 

What is Chairs for Charity? 

When Park City took down the Motherlode chair lift this summer, they kept a few chairs to help support local nonprofits. Over the last several weeks, 18 Park City nonprofits, including KPCW, have teamed up with local artists to create a work of art out of their chair. All of the chairs will be auctioned off at a private event on December 10. KPCW's artists are Park City-based Bill Kranstover and Malia Denali. 


Local artists Bill Kranstover and Malia Denali are busy putting the final touches on two of the old Motherlode Chairs, after turning them into pieces of art for the for Chairs for Charity event next week.  Lynn Ware Peek has more.
