What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our biggest current problem is we have outgrown our studio space. We cannot hire needed positions because we have no place to put them. We are starting a capital campaign and will be breaking ground for an expansion later this summer. Another challenge we face is the speed at which technology is changing and the way radio will be delivered. Thanks to smart speakers, HD car radios, and other digital avenues, public radio is actually growing. To keep up, we need to update much of our broadcast equipment. The cost of this upgrade will be folded into the capital campaign. In our area, much of the population, economy, and radio audience is concentrated in Park City. The other areas we serve are more rural. These communities often have different needs and interests. KPCW has been working hard to build connections to these areas, provide thorough local news coverage, and address the unique issues and needs of this segment of our radio audience.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our current goals are:

• To be THE source for community connection in Wasatch and Summit counties, through a commitment to locally-based news, information, and promotion of the arts and nonprofit work.
• To expand the KPCW studios through a capital campaign.
• Increase listenership and participation from outside the immediate Park City area and outside of Summit and Wasatch counties by increasing our digital outreach.

Our capital campaign is underway and in its first stages.

We are hiring a full-time digital specialist soon, who will help us navigate all the changes in technology and to more fully optimize our online presence.

We are doing a full-scale update on our digital equipment.

We are making some programming changes to increase the quality of what we broadcast and to fill the needs of our growing audience.

We are well positioned to have a successful campaign. Our community is very supportive of our station and we have hired specialists to help it run smoothly.

We've been one of NPR's top 20 stations for growth in online audiences. We post every story on our website and are reaching an ever-increasing audience outside our broadcast signal.

KPCW is coming up on its 40-year anniversary and we continue to grow.

For our expansion, we already have city approval for our plans. The architectural designs are complete and our capital campaign team in place. While we are in the first stages of the campaign and we are organized and are moving forward.

As part of the capital campaign, we will purchase our updated digital equipment over the next year. Many hours of research and training has already gone into these changes. Likewise, the survey has been ordered as part of the capital campaign.
