In 1889--the same year that the Wall Street Journal was founded, the same year that the states of Washington and Montana were admitted into the Union, and the same year that Benjamin Harrison was inaugurated President of the United States—a small-town newspaper and print shop opened business in Wasatch County. Since this time, the Wasatch Wave has covered and reported thousands of pages of history to the residents of Wasatch and Summit counties.
The Wasatch Wave is the longest standing business in Wasatch County and continues to be the community’s voice on local issues and stories. With a staff that appreciates the hard work of its forefathers, the family-run newspaper is celebrating 125 years of being in operation.
While businesses come and go, the Wasatch Wave has endured much by adapting to community needs and by offering quality news stories and business products to its clients, including the Wave’s one-stop print shop which specializes in everything from business cards to magazines and newsletters.
The Wave continues to print a weekly newspaper along with its sister publication--the Summit County News. Each week, the Wave’s dedicated staff prepares thousands of lineal feet of newspaper on a large print press that is open for the public to view. The Wasatch Wave is located at 165 S. 100 W. in Heber and can also be found at www.wasatchwave.com.
The Heber Valley Chamber appreciates the Wasatch Wave and encourages local businesses to join the newspaper in celebrating its 125th anniversary. Learn more about the Wasatch Wave who will be spotlighted during the Heber Valley Chamber’s monthly luncheon on Tuesday, August 19.
