KPCW Radio has completed a significant upgrade to its signal at 88.1 FM that has noticeably improved the listening experience of our core listeners in Summit and Wasatch counties. 

KPCW operates on two FM frequencies: 91.9 FM, broadcasting from a tower on top of Quarry Mountain just north of Park City, and 88.1 FM, originating on a tower on top of Lewis Peak which is the dominant peak visible to the northeast from the Snyderville Basin.  

KPCW was honored Thursday night in Indianapolis as one of America's Top 5 non-commercial radio stations. Lynn Ware Peek has more.

“It was an honor to be included in the list of great American radio stations,” KPCW General Manager Larry Warren said.  “I couldn’t be more proud of the staff and volunteers who create great radio for the citizens of the Wasatch Back.”
