KPCW News Is Expanding

Mar 30, 2015

KPCW is seeking to add one more reporter to its award winning staff.  Join Leslie Thatcher, Lynn Ware Peek and Rick Brough reporting the news on KPCW.  We are seeking an experienced reporter with a passion for community journalism.  

We need a naturally curious person with strong writing, interviewing, social media and presentation skills.  The reporter will also be a news anchor and a backup drive time news host, conducting live interviews, performing under deadline pressure daily.  Knowledge of digital audio gathering and editing required.

'Transportation's Uncomfortable Choices' was the topic for Thursday night's public panel discuss and forum, hosted by the Project for a Deeper Understanding. Moderated by former Summit County Commissioner and KPCW Board President Bob Richer lead the panel into a discussion of options and plans involving transportation into and around Summit County.

Panelists included:

KPCW Website Improved For Mobile

Mar 24, 2015

KPCW's website has a new look that makes it easier to read and navigate, whether you're checking it out on a desktop computer, table or smart phone.

Dubbed 'responsive design', the new look resizes our layout and content to work with different devices. News reporting, public service announcements and lost and found are all still part of the website - as well as the ability to listen live or catch up on public affairs hour shows.

Transportation's Uncomfortable Choices

Mar 16, 2015

MORE LANES or FEWER CARS? 

Most think that using mass transit is a good idea… for the other guy. 

But development in and around Park City is bringing traffic congestion with it. 

What are the potential solutions? 

KPCW will air the live public forum hosted by the Project for Deeper Understanding on this issue. 

The discussion will include a panel of experts from the county and city, Mountain Accord, the resorts and community members. 

Thursday, March 26th from 7 to 9 PM 

Live from St. Luke’s Church 

Behind-the-Scenes Volunteers Needed

Feb 23, 2015

KPCW is building its volunteer program for projects and programs off the air. We are looking for responsible, detail-oriented, computer-savvy local news fans to join our team. Time commitment is about two to three hours a week. Which hours you're here are flexible. For more information, or to sign up, contact Monika at volunteer@kpcw.org or fill out the volunteer application with the online PSA.

A community day coming up Friday will benefit KPCW Radio and usher in the Sundance Film Festival with a live broadcast of The Sundance Reel with KPCW's This Green Earth's hosts Chris Cherniak and Nell Larson. Lynn Ware Peek has more.

Happy Thanksgiving From KPCW

Nov 26, 2014

KPCW has the live broadcast of The Splendid Table's 'Turkey Confidential' for you, starting at 9 AM, followed by a special program, Giving Thanks. And as holiday tradition dictates, Volunteer DJ Paul Askins will play Arlo Guthrie's Alice's Restaurant right after NPR's news headlines at noon.

We are immensely thankful for all our listeners and supporters this past year. Happy Turkey Day and have a safe and fun long weekend!

Holiday Programming

THURSDAY

6:00 - 9:00 AM     Morning Edition

You'll hear things at new times with KPCW's morning show clocks.

If you wake up and schedule your morning rhythms to the morning news with Leslie Thatcher, this week, you might have noticed you felt a little off-tempo.

That’s because NPR has changed the timing of their Morning Edition programming.

Each show on-air is governed by a “clock.” These graphical representations of each hour lay out what happens in a program and when. 

Thank you to the 300 folks who donated to KPCW online, and the dozens of people who contributed off-line during Park City's Community Day of Giving Friday.

We surpassed our stated goal of $20,000, but most of all, we appreciated all the support we felt for local community news and public radio.

Thank You Thank You Thank You!
