More about KPCW

Since 1980, KPCW has been an essential source of daily news for residents and visitors across Summit and Wasatch counties. Beyond being an NPR affiliate, KPCW strives to be an anchor in our community that listens deeply, surfaces untold stories, presents fact-based information that builds awareness, empathy, and engagement among the diverse communities we serve. KPCW’s primary focus is to connect and inform our listeners, showcase local arts and cultural organizations and events, support area nonprofits and businesses, promote tourism across the region, and provide emergency first response information and resources.

KPCW dedicates 4.5 hours a day to in-depth local news and interviews with city and county leaders, public health officials, local school boards, and nonprofits serving the community, in addition to up-to-the minute information on local emergencies, weather, and road conditions. KPCW local programs include the Local News Hour with Leslie Thatcher and The Local View with Randy Barton. Our daily public affairs shows include Mountain Money (finance), This Green Earth (environment), The Mountain Life (health and wellness), Cool Science Radio (science and technology), and Rich Tones Curated Jazz (Friday and Saturday nights), along with 80+ hours of carefully curated, intentionally eclectic music each week.

In an effort expand and reach new audiences, in July 2022 KPCW launched a new free newsletter, The Local, delivering the top news stories of the past 24 hours to subscribers' email inboxes every morning. And in October 2022, KPCW debuted a new segment to better serve our Spanish-speaking audience called Minuto Hispano, a series of PSAs and event updates airing in Spanish and posted bilingually online.

As a public radio station, KPCW's primary sources of funding come from individual donors and underwriters along with funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Summit County Recreation, Arts, and Parks (RAP) tax grant program, and other charitable grants. 

KPCW is a not-for-profit 501 (c)3 corporation, Federal ID #94-2528451
