Bonneville’s NBC affiliate KSL-TV Salt Lake City aired an in-depth special report, “In Search of Safe Schools,” on March 22. It ran commercial-free for the first 20 minutes of KSL’s 10 p.m. newscast and examined nationwide and local efforts to improve school safety. KSL and Bonneville’s KSL-AM, KSFI-FM and KRSP-FM also partnered with Stand Up for a Safe Utah to promote the free SAFEUT app that lets users call or text tips of bullying, threats or other school safety concerns anonymously to school administrators. More than 15,000 parents, students and educators across Utah downloaded the app.
“Our Stand Up for a Safe Utah campaign, special KSL TV programming and support of SAFEUT is indicative of our dedication to helping our viewers, listeners and users face challenging issues when they arise,” said General Manager Tanya Vea.
