West Jordan - On September 10, 1954, KUTV Channel 2 Utah signed on the air for the first time. Sixty-one years later, they are the crème de la crème of broadcast news.

From 5 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. throughout the week, they placed first in the ratings over every newscast in Utah, capturing 63 out of 72 quarter hours throughout the day and easily winning May sweeps.

Out of all lifestyle shows, KUTV’s “Fresh Living” came in as nonpareil and the successful new social media show, “The Refresh,” continued its upward swing by winning its 3 p.m. time slot.

2News at 10 led the pack with easy distance; Mark Koelbel and Shawna Lake helped make 2News at 10 the highest rated local news program in Utah yet again.

2News “This Morning” gathered the most viewers in the state, and CBS came out the victor in a battle for network news with CBS This Morning.

KUTV and CBS took first in primetime programming, offering a staggering 19 of the top 30 primetime shows.

“We are so grateful to our audience for tuning in each day,” said Lee Eldridge, KUTV news director. “We have a very loyal group of viewers, and our staff here at KUTV works their hardest each day to provide the newscasts our audience deserves.”
