Wendy Gourley

Fundraising Manager

Wendy Gourley loves two things--people and stories. She loves working with the people who support the important work at KPCW and is excited to be part of the team that tells the stories of the Wasatch Back with such passion and care. A writer with a background in arts and events management, she has applied her diverse skills everywhere from the Kennedy Center and UVU, to her latest work with the Ben McAdams’ Congressional campaign.

Wendy used to live in Park City in the 90’s, where she taught hundreds of kids through the Youtheatre program at the Egyptian Theatre and The Colby School. She is thrilled to be back and to have the opportunity to connect with this vibrant community once more .

Which version of "A Star is Born" is your favorite? This and other pressing movie questions get posed and answered by the panel on this episode of the KPCW Film Roundtable. Hosted by KPCW's own Rick Brough, who's joined by Friday Film Reviewers Mark Harrington and Wendy Gourley, as well as KPCW reporter and token Millenial, Emily Means, the team reviews summer films, remakes and what their sleeper favorites were.

On the program today, the musical guests are Earl Bud Lee and Matt Warren, performers at Park City Songwriter Festival. John and Wendy chat with Luther Dickinson, a headliner at Park City Songwriter Festival this weekend.  The final guest is Dave Gremler, the DJ for the Autumn Aloft event. They have a run down of all the events happening this weekend.

The latest Spider-Man movie is being examined by a person who admits she’s mostly a stranger in the Marvel Universe.

Here I am, once again reviewing a movie in a genre I don’t know much about. “Spider-Man: Far From Home” is the latest installment from Marvel Studios and I have only seen a few Avenger movies. But perhaps this makes me the perfect lab rat to test whether this movie is strong enough to stand on its own or if it’s full of weak storytelling that has to lean on the whole franchise for support.

A new Spider-Man film is out, and though there have been a handful of films featuring the web-slinging superhero--even played by a few different actors--you don't need to have seen every one of them to understand the latest iteration. You may, however, have to have watched a dozen other Marvel films to know what's going on. Casual superhero movie watcher Wendy Gourley and Marvel Cinematic Universe enthusiast Emily Means discuss Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Following the example of “Bohemian Rhapsody” a new film telling the story of a rock n roll legend has hit the big screen.

KPCW is pleased to welcome a new member of the Friday Film review crew. For her debut, Wendy Gourley is stepping out of her comfort zone and taking a look at the new horror film, "The Curse of La Llorona"

I admit I’m not a big fan of horror movies, so you might wonder why I chose “The Curse of La Llorona” for my first Friday Film Review. I owe it all to La Llorona herself and my fascination with folklore.
