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. DONATE

Business As Usual



I spoke with an executive assistant at The Salt Lake Tribune about noon on Jan. 20. She sounded as if mine were the first call about this matter, and she laughed a bit when I told her that the thought of the Mormon church gaining control of the Tribune infuriates me [“What a Week,” Private Eye, Jan. 21, City Weekly].

She “assured” me of two things: 1. I have “nothing to worry about,” and 2. “It’s business as usual” at The Salt Lake Tribune—which I took to mean that the Mormon church will not gain controlling interest in the paper.

Time will tell.
