The pulsing force behind Heart of Utah is KSL NewsRadio’s Colby Walker. He feels passionate about the need to spotlight positive news stories. 

“Things feel a little upside down for a lot of people right now and there’s always an onslaught of the sad news that we’re all exposed to. But that hasn’t stopped good things from happening. We started Heart of Utah to try and shine a spotlight on all of the goodness that’s happening around the state. We know that Utah is special and a lot of the good things that happen don’t get the sort of attention that they should. So that’s what Heart of Utah is all about, it’s us trying to share some good vibes, a few chuckles, and some heartwarming content in a world that could use a few extra rays of sunshine,” Walker said. 

Follow along with the Heart of Utah series live on Wednesday mornings at 6:45 AM, on our Youtube channel, or the online articles.
