May 18, 2001 – KUER FM90, public radio station of the University of Utah, will expand its locally-produced program, RadioWest, and launch its redesigned web site on Monday, May 21st.

KUER’s own RadioWest, with Executive Producer Doug Fabrizio, examines the culture and issues of the West, while keeping Utah clearly in the foreground. The program covers local and regional issues through interviews, news stories and book reviews. RadioWest will expand on Monday, May 21st to a daily, hour-long call-in program, allowing KUER to cover more pertinent issues on a timely basis while inviting dialogue from the community it serves. RadioWest will be aired every weekday from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. on 90.1 FM.

The expansion of RadioWest marks the first daily live local show in KUER’s 40-year history. Along with alternate host, KUER’s News Director Kat Snow, and Producers Bryan Schott and Sherri Quinn, the show will feature topics such as polygamy, Utah satire, and the mystery of Everett Ruess in the first week. RadioWest will occasionally feature some of the other members of the KUER News Staff, providing long-form stories or live reporting.

Also happening on Monday, May 21st, KUER will launch a completely redesigned and reprogrammed website at KUER.org. This marks KUER’s first foray into daily news on the Web. At KUER.org, listeners can find audio and text of RadioWest and other local news broadcast on KUER, along with more information about NPR programs. While the site’s content still includes all the great features KUER listeners are used to, such as a live audio stream, links to public radio insider information, and the ability to pledge online, the site features a new, colorful design and improved structure.
