Non-profit leaders in Salt Lake City, including KPCW-FM founder Blair Feulner, have “figured out a way to get rich running companies that don’t make money,” writes Salt Lake Tribune columnist Rebecca Walsh. “The United Way scandal it’s not. But it’s similar.” In 2005, Feulner was paid nearly $180,000 while the station ran a $600,000 deficit and its “low-wage journalists . . . [begged] for listener donations” twice a year.
