We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

Getting Randy



If the Egyptian Theatre Company was looking for someone who knows how to entertain the people of Park City, it's hard to imagine they could have done any better than Randy Barton.

A 30-plus-year fixture in Summit County, Barton was named ETC's Theatre Manager today, adding to his arm-long resume of Park City arts ventures. He hosts an afternoon radio show on KPCW; he founded the non-profit Mountain Town Stages music series; he's hosted programming on Park City Television; he even performed on the ETC stage back in the day when it was home to "The Park City Players." Barton will now be handling ETC duties, according to a press release, "encompassing programming, operations and facilities responsibilities." A lot tackle in tough times, but if Barton knows his audience as well as it seems, he could be up to the job.
