Parents Television Council Announces New Leadership for Salt Lake City Chapter

Brian Urie Becomes New Chapter Director


LOS ANGELES— The Parents Television Council, the nation’s most influential advocacy organization protecting children from graphic sex, violence and profanity in the media, announced Brian Urie as the new Director of the Salt Lake City Chapter. A proven leader, Urie brings a new sense of energy to the SLC Chapter.


A proud father of three, Urie has become disgusted with the outrageous and lurid programming being shown. He fears that the constant barrage of violence and sex is harming tomorrow’s future. The SLC Chapter will aid parents who feel lost against the Goliath of the entertainment industry by educating the public and encouraging activism.


Urie will create a strong voice for parents in his community, “While interviewing a Boy Scout for a merit badge recently, he taught me that when a musical instrument is in tune, it produces more volume.   Similarly, when all concerned parent's voices are united, it's difficult for decision makers to ignore the volume.  I decided to get involved because the PTC struck me as the loudest voice that was in tune with my own thoughts and desires for television network programming.” 


“Brian will carry on the tradition of strong leadership for the SLC Chapter” said Tim Winter, President of the PTC. He added, “He brings energy and an unwavering passion for protecting children from today’s unabashed programming. I know great things will come from the SLC Chapter.”
