Larry Warren

President and General Manager

Where so many of KPCW’s staff claim longevity in town, Larry has the extra credit of having actually written the book on Park City - Park City: Mountain of Treasure. Now, however, he is the Wasatch County connection on the team, living in the Heber Valley. Larry is most recognized from being a television broadcaster for more than 30 years, but he has also made a career out of being a freelance writer and photographer before coming over to public radio in 2010.

In additional to GM duties, Larry hosts the Mountain Money show every Monday morning during the Public Affairs Hour with co-host Doug Wells.

Ways To Connect

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.

Jeffrey Pfeffer, author of Leadership BS - Fixing Workplaces and Careers One Truth at a Time, offers a hard-hitting dissection of the leadership industry and ways to make workplaces and careers work better. Pfeffer shines a bright light on the leadership industry, showing why it’s failing and how it might be remade. He sets the record straight on the oft-made prescriptions for leaders to be honest, authentic, and modest, tell the truth, build trust, and take care of others.


Today’s first guest is author E. Freya Williams.  Her book, Green Giants, examines nine companies that are merging social responsibility with wild profitability - and reveals the six factors responsible for their success.

Larry Warren and Doug Wells interview two-time Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist Gilbert M. Gaul author of, Billion Dollar Ball: A Journey Through the Big-Money Culture of College Football. Gaul offers a riveting and sometimes shocking look inside the money culture of college football and how it has come to dominate a surprising number of colleges and universities.

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.


Hosts Larry Warren and Doug Wells interview Bobby Monks, author of Uninvested: How Wall Street Highjacks your Money and How to Fight Back:

Every month our financial statements arrive, and every month we glance at them, trying to understand, hoping that we’ll come out ahead. But most of us have no idea what’s really going on or the costs involved. According to Bobby Monks—who has been a banker and borrower, investor and entrepreneur—financial firms and money managers have complicated the investing process to keep us in the dark, profiting from our ignorance.


It's Day One of KPCW's Summer Birthday Pledge Drive and the phones were ringing off the hook.  In studio with Larry and Doug were Ryan Hoffman and Brooks Harbertson of Mountain West Bank, sponsors of Mountain Money. 

The second segment of the show featured Terry Orme, publisher and editor of the Salt Lake Tribune.  The discussion centered around the ever-changing landscape of news and newspapers.


Larry Warren and Doug Wells talk with Paulo Shoemaker, author of Can’t Not Do: The Compelling Social Drive that Changes Our World. Can't Not Do is a catchphrase for the urge that captures the heart of effective social change agents – explaining in their own words, their passion and drive, "I can’t not do this. It’s not that I can do this, it’s that I can’t not.” The lessons are reflected in seven seemingly simple questions that provide guideposts and unlock the readers potential to make a difference for a social cause they care about.
