Salt Lake Tribune Becomes The First Nonprofit U.S. Newspaper

In a historic and unprecedented move, The Salt Lake Tribune newspaper — the largest in Utah — is now a nonprofit.

It’s a move that’s aimed to further support the daily paper financially as more and more newspapers across the country struggle to stay in business. The move makes The Salt Lake Tribune the first fully nonprofit newspaper in the country.

The shift was spearheaded by the paper’s owner, Paul Huntsman. The change means that he is giving up his sole ownership of the legacy paper.

To talk more about what led up to the decision and what this will mean for The Salt Lake Tribune moving forward, and how this could potentially affect other newspapers in the country, The Show spoke with Matt Canham, senior managing editor at The Salt Lake Tribune.
