Anatomy of a Pledge Drive

Jul 19, 2013

August 26-30, 2013.

Twice a year, KPCW takes to the airwaves and asks its listeners for support in bringing daily, original news, information and entertainment focused on Park City, Summit and Wasatch Counties.

But unlike, public radio stations around the country, KPCW has never been satisfied with given a logoed mug, tote bag or fridge magnets. Instead, we collect the support of our local businesses, restaurants and retail outlets - as well as some choice out-of-town venues - to offer listeners an almost dollar-for-dollar value for their donation.
