Best public radio station in Utah
KCPW’s content is really excellent and I love the journalism they provide for the state of Utah.
Thank you Emily Means and public radio
I have a long commute to work and love listening to KCPW's shows to learn more about Utah. As a transplant to SLC, their in-house programs have taught me so much about local issues and made me feel like part of the community. In the Hive with Emily Means is my favorite. I really appreciate how she connects local and national news stories and interviews locals with direct knowledge and relevance to the weekly topics. Thanks KCPW! So glad you set up the podcast format!
