Serving as the capital of Utah, and anchoring the most populous region in the state, Salt Lake City and the surrounding region is home to over 2 million people along the Wasatch Range. While known by many as the seat of the Mormon church, Salt Lake City hosts a diverse cultural scene as well, including a vibrant music scene that has spawned such talent as Dia Frampton, The Almost, SheDaisy, The Used, David Archuleta and others.
Arbitron ranks the Salt Lake City radio market (which includes the cities of Ogden and Provo) as the nations 31st largest. However, the actual reach of radio and television media is a bit larger than the immediate population, as many media outlets utilize translator stations to broadcast across the state of Utah and beyond, to the large outlying region that relies on Salt Lake City for communication, news and information. While a diversity of formats are represented in the dozens of radio stations in Salt Lake City, News/Talk seems to be one of the area’s more popular formats, with two stations (KSL and KNRS) competing for a large portion of market share.
Whether your goal is to be a talk show host, newscaster, program director, radio DJ, station manager or technical engineer, the Salt Lake City radio market affords plenty of real-world opportunities to learn, connect and grow. And the RADIO CONNECTION can help you make the most of these opportunities where other schools cannot.
