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.

Interns Gone Wild

As a cautionary tale for City Weekly's own blogging editorial interns, this Wednesday entry from ABC 4 reporter Chris Vanocur's blog on Please to enjoy Amber, whom we believe to be 14.

Mr. Vanocur is busy today so I, Amber, will be writing his blog today. I'm an intern at ABC 4.

I will first begin by saying that Mr. Vanocur is my hero. I have the honor of having my desk next to his, and every day I learn something very important to my education. For example, I've learned where to find the best cupcakes in Salt Lake.

I thought it would also be important for Vanocur's many blog readers to know that I have recently dyed my hair brown. Some of the people in the studio did not recognize me. Including Vanocur. I was heartbroken.

On a happier note, I got engaged on Sunday. His name is Garrett and he's a hunk. We'll be married on Sept. 25. Mr. Vanocur is not engaged.

The best kind of dog is an English Retriever. However, there is an editor here at the studio that sometimes brings his St. Bernard puppy. That is a very cute creature and I want one.

My Birthday is tomorrow. I'm hoping that Mr. Vanocur brings me one of those cupcakes I mentioned earlier.  Coconut is my preference.  If he were to bring me a St. Bernard puppy too, I would not complain.

Many of you may wonder what it is like to be an intern at ABC 4. You may be wondering how it is to associate with famous people like Chris Vanocur.  Really, it's like I'm famous, except nobody knows who I am.

Now go watch Chris Vanocur on ABC 4 at ten.
