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

Corey O’Brien:“X96 Live and Local Spotlight had a great first year! I’m lucky to have an enthusiastic staff and amazing facilities to shine a light on Utah artists on X96. We focus on one artist a month to make sure people get to know them. This year we’re adding local music showcases and finding even more ways to feature Utah artists. I’m very grateful to the bands who’ve made this a success and for the recognition!”
