This Is Utah, a new weekly series produced by KUED, celebrates the diverse people and communities that call this place home. We’ll travel the state, discovering how Utah’s own distinctive mix of independent Western attitude, inspiring landscapes and pioneering heritage informs who we are at heart, and defines our collective sense of place.
Host Liz Adeola invites viewers on a journey around the state to highlight the people, arts, cultures, and communities that make Utah unique. Experience the cheering crowds at the Casey Mascerio rodeo; see the colorful costumes and intricate dance techniques of Salt Lake’s Ballet Folklórico and Provo’s BYU Folk Dance Ensemble; travel back in time with Ogden Jazz legend Joe McQueen; go behind-the-scenes of Spring City’s Heritage Days; meet Frankie the Snowbird avalanche dog; go inside the studio with artist Kent Christensen; learn about the Mars Desert Research Station; experience Antelope Island’s annual bison roundup, and more, in the premiere season of This Is Utah.
We’ll meet the hardworking people and diverse communities that bring Utah to life, from Ogden to Spring City, and Boulder to Tremonton.
We’re traveling the state to tell YOUR stories. Who knows, we might be in your community next!
