KPCW Receives an Early Christmas Gift: A Donated Salt Lake City FM Radio Station and a New Transmission Facility For KPCW

KPCW-FM, the nonprofit community radio station serving Summit and Wasatch Counties since 1980, has entered into an agreement with Salt Lake City-based Broadway Media to acquire its FM station KUDD, operating along the Wasatch Front on 107.9 FM.  Broadway Media is donating the radio station at no cost to KPCW.

“Inspired by Nature”

Everything on this tree is natural: the tree bark, the grasses, the ornaments, even the recycled plastic balls.  KPCW is an unique and natural fit to the community, hence our playful “All things natural and Park City unique” décor. 

The purchase of this tree includes a one-year membership to the KPCW Broadcasters Club Silver Level.

See details of the tree in the slideshow above.

Community Forum - Live Broadcast

Oct 14, 2015

As part of an on-going series of community forums, The Project for Deeper Understanding and KPCW partnered to bring the discussion on the Park City School District School Bond issue. KPCW broadcasted the event live from the St. Luke's Episcopal Church.

Moderated by Dr. John Hanrahan

Panelists include:

KPCW, Park City’s nonprofit community radio station was one of five noncommercial stations honored by the National Association of Broadcasters at their annual Radio Show held in Atlanta.  The station was one of five nominated for “Noncommercial station of the Year.”  It was the second consecutive year the station reached the finals for the coveted award, which is the radio industry’s equivalent of the Oscar or the Emmy.

Last week the greater Park City and Heber Valley communities came together as they do every six months and responded to KPCW’s call to donate to our community radio station.  Few communities our size in America have a locally focused station like ours, and we are humbled and inspired by the community’s response whenever we have this crazy pledge week.

We received 778 calls and over $100,000 in pledges.  This level of support is necessary to meet our budget, which is spent almost exclusively on local content and content providers like our great news and public affairs staff.
