Behind the Headlines

Friday's from 9 a.m - 10 a.m.
  • Hosted by , Roger McDonough

  From its politics to its public lands to polygamy, Utah has always been fertile ground for news. Here on UPR, The Salt Lake Tribune presents a fresh way for Utahns to process the headlines. Behind the Headlines, a live weekly broadcast, examines the week’s top local stories through the eyes of reporters on the beat.

KCPW's producer and news host Roger McDonough and a rotating panel of the state’s top journalists – including columnist Paul Rolly, investigative reporter Matt Canham, senior government reporter Robert Gehrke, reporter Kathy Stephenson and others – will talk about what’s happening in the Beehive State along with the hows and whys.

Listeners can join the discussion by sending questions to #TribTalk on Twitter, Google+, commenting on sltrib.com or calling (801) 355-TALK.
