Open Call for New Board Members
Wasatch Public Media, the nonprofit behind KCPW, is looking for new board members. We’re a small 501(c)(3) corporation with one goal: upholding your local, independent source of news, information, culture, and ideas. We are eager to hear from others who are passionate about public radio, and we are especially interested in prospective board members with business, legal, or nonprofit backgrounds.
When KCPW went on the air in 1993, its 24/7 news and information format was unique in the Salt Lake market. From our studio on Library Square, KCPW continues that tradition today with national programs like This American Life, Radiolab, and Marketplace, and in-house, award-winning local programs like Behind the Headlines, In the Hive, and Both Sides of the Aisle.
If you care about local, independent media, and you’re interested in serving our community, we’d love to hear from you. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know about yourself, your interests, and background.
