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.

We couldn't have the unique pledge drives we do without the TREMENDOUS support of our business community. Sometimes it's just a quick phone call asking, "You in?" and sometimes it's a longer conversation discussing times, exposure and response. Whatever length of the initial conversation, everyone here at KPCW is so grateful for the businesses, non-profit organizations and individuals who allow our thanks you gifts to be something different from a tote bag or coffee mug.
