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

  Doug and Larry's first guest is Tobie Stanger who is senior editor for  Consumer  Reports.  Seniors and their families lose billions of dollars each year to fraud. Financial elder abuse is rising fast.  Estimates of the crime’s frequency vary. A 2010 survey of seniors by the nonprofit Investor Protection Trust projected that 1 in 5 seniors had been taken advantage of financially.  In the second segment, Dana and Mark Gaunt of Vacation Lockers talk about Vacation Lockers.

  Larry and Doug’s first guest is Roger Lowenstein, author of America's Bank: The Epic Struggle to Create the Federal Reserve. A tour de force of historical reportage, America’s Bank illuminates the tumultuous era and remarkable personalities that spurred the unlikely birth of America’s modern central bank, the Federal Reserve. Today, the Fed is the bedrock of the financial landscape, yet the fight to create it was so protracted and divisive that it seems a small miracle that it was ever established.

       In his provocative book, author Harry Frankfurt, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of On Bullshit presents a compelling and unsettling response to those who believe that the goal of social justice should be economic equality or less inequality.

Diversity Statements

Nov 6, 2015


October 2015

KPCW is committed to having a staff, board of trustees and community advisory board that reflects the diversity of our community. Managers are encouraged to interview a well-qualified and diverse candidate pool for all open positions. 

 The first guests this morning are Dr. Susan Madsen, Project Director andOrin R. Woodbury Professor of Leadership and Ethics, Utah Valley University. Utah Valley University is pleased to host the Utah Women and Leadership Project (UWLP), which began in August 2013.

In Simple Sabotage,  authors Robert M. Galford, Bob Frisch and Cary Greene revisit a list of OSS tactics designed to thwart the internal processes of organizations, with tips for wasting time  and bringing efficiency to a halt. The OSS believed that these small acts of barely detectable sabotage would wear down the enemy over time and help the Allies win the war. Frisch explains that these same behaviors are rampant in organizations today, from global corporations to PTA committees, yet people typically have no idea they are even taking place.

Hosts Larry Warren and Doug Wells's first guest is Neel Doshi, co-author of Primed to Perform: How to Build the Highest Performing Cultures Through the Science of Total Motivation. While most leaders believe culture is critical to success, few know how to build one, or sustain it over time. In Primed to Perform, Doshi and Lindsay McGregor show how to do just that.

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.

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.
