KCPW-FM/AM in Salt Lake is up for sale. The board of Community Wireless of Park City, licensee of Park City’s KPCW and sister KCPW, voted unanimously to “spin-off” its Salt Lake stations “in order to better focus its attention on serving its KPCW listeners in Summit and Wasatch Counties,” according to a statement issued on Sunday. The board authorized Ed Sweeney, KCPW g.m., to form a new non-profit that would raise money to purchase KCPW’s AM and FM outlets, but it will accept offers from other interested nonprofits. The Salt Lake Tribune reports that KCPW has been losing money since 2006.
