New radio recre­ation re­port to fea­ture Utah’s state parks

Serve Daily - - NEWS -

Utah res­i­dents have a new source for find­ing great fam­ily recre­ation ideas in the state of Utah.

Cow­boy Ted Hal­lisey and JD Fox are host­ing the Utah Sky­line Recre­ation Re­port each morn­ing be­tween 9:15 and 9:30 a.m. on KLGL The Ea­gle 94.5 radio sta­tion and also on the Mid Utah Radio web site at http://midu­tahra­ stream.

The Utah Sky­line Recre­ation Re­port is spon­sored by Utah State Parks and the daily re­port will fea­ture one or more of the 43 Utah state parks each day.

“Utah’s state parks of­fer a va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties from learn­ing about di­nosaurs at the Utah Field House State Park Mu­seum in Ver­nal to ex­plor­ing the lava tubes at Snow Canyon State Park in St. Ge­orge,” said Utah State Parks Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Man­ager Eu­gene Swal­berg. “We are ex­cited to part­ner with Cow­boy Ted and The Ea­gle to let peo­ple know more about op­por­tu­ni­ties in Utah’s state parks.”

There will also be chances to win great recre­ational prizes, which will also be given away on the Utah Sky­line Recre­ation Re­port page on Face­book.

Cow­boy Ted is a vet­eran radio per­son­al­ity and for­mer tourism di­rec­tor in South­ern Utah and has pro­duced sev­eral recre­ation guides. He has hosted sev­eral school as­sem­blies for over 100,000 kids across Utah to en­cour­age them to get out­side, get ac­tive and get healthy.

He also pro­vides sev­eral re­sources for kids (in­clud­ing the on­line Utah Sky­line Recre­ation Guide) on the www.cow­ web­site.

Cow­boy Ted and JD Fox were re­united on air last month af­ter host­ing the recre­ation re­port on KLGL from 2004 to 2008. “The recre­ation re­port in­spires me to get out and ex­plore one of the most di­verse states, and it’s all in my back­yard,” Fox said.“I am ex­cited to be back in radio and host­ing the recre­ation re­port,” Hal­lisey said. “It is ex­cit­ing to pro­vide in­for­ma­tion to lis­ten­ers about all of the great ac­tiv­i­ties and recre­ation op­por­tu­ni­ties at Utah state parks.”

“I have been to sev­eral of the Utah state parks,” Hal­lisey con­tin­ued, “but I am also re­ally ex­cited to be learn­ing about new ad­ven­tures to share with my fam­ily and fam­i­lies across Utah – like the great zip line fea­ture at Yuba State Park.”
