Transportation's Uncomfortable Choices

Mar 16, 2015


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 

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.

Giving Tuesday, December 2

Black Friday. Small Business Saturday. Cyber Monday. And now, #GivingTuesday.

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


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!

KPCW-FM scored in several categories of the Utah Broadcasters Association “UBEE” awards Wednesday night at a gala in Salt Lake City’s Energy Solutions Arena.

Park City’s community-licensed station took three gold UBEEs and four in the silver category.

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.

KPCW in Park City was honored Thursday night, September 11 in Indianapolis as one of America’s top five noncommercial radio stations.  Park City’s community radio station was among an elite group of public stations honored with a nomination for the Marconi Award, the radio industry’s highest honor for overall excellence in broadcasting.

“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.”
