About Us

|||| |||| ||||

West View Media is a non-profit news organization that informs, educates and inspires readers through publications that focus on the diverse communities in west Salt Lake City. We offer an authentic look into an area of Salt Lake City that has traditionally been undervalued and misrepresented by mainstream media and local government entities. We strive to do this not only with professional staff, but also by empowering people who live and work in west Salt Lake City to tell their own stories, in their own voice.

NARRATIVE: We aspire to reflect the qualities and character of the west side that enhance the culture of Salt Lake City. 

VOICE: We recognize that every person has a unique perspective and experience that reflects our community, through platforms for disenfranchised voices to be heard.
