The radio program is also celebrating its 20th anniversary on the air this year. In two decades, “Speaking on Business” has spotlighted hundreds of businesses across Utah and Idaho. It never matters whether they are large corporations, small businesses or brand new startups, “Speaking on Business” cares about sharing the unique stories and missions of each company, while promoting the importance of small businesses to our economy.

Program host Chris Redgrave joined Zions Bank President and CEO Scott Anderson and Executive Vice President Rob Brough to thank the businesses for striving to make our economy stronger and presented an award to each business owner. “Their commitment to our community is outstanding,” Redgrave said. “These companies are truly experts in what they do; and, because they succeed, our cities and neighborhoods succeed.”
