Rick Brough

Summit County Reporter

Known for getting all the facts right, as well as his distinctive sign-off, Rick covers Summit County meetings and issues. KPCW snagged him from The Park Record in the '80s, and he's been on air and covering the entire county ever since. He produces the Week In Review podcast, as well a heads the Friday Film Review team.

Rick is also a pop-culture savant (who would bury you in Trivial Pursuit), which makes him the perfect host for KPCW's weekend interview show of filmmakers, actors and critics during the Sundance Film Festival. Revealing his darker side, you can catch him every Friday afternoon with Randy Barton on The Local View discussing which celebrities passed on that week.

Cummings said that Katz has misstated the facts about their legal dispute over PCMR's ski mountain, as a transparent public relations effort to pressure Powdr into a Vail takeover of the resort.

Cumming writes that exchanging letters in public is counterproductive, but he needs to set the record straight. All he tells Katz, "If you want to resolve this dispute, call me." Rick Brough has more.
