The Hinckley Institute Radio Hour is a weekly program featuring forums on local, national, and international issues important to people living in Utah. The program airs every Wednesday at 10 AM and Saturday at 9 AM.
Hosted by Anthony Scoma, the program highlights and contextualizes the forums presented by the Hinckley Institute of Politics every fall and spring semester at the University of Utah. Speakers include local, national, and international politicians, ambassadors, lobbyists, activists, and academics.
The Hinckley Institute of Politics was founded with a mission to engage students in governmental, civic, and political processes; promote a better understanding and appreciation of politics; and train ethical and visionary students for public service.
Hinckley Forums are held at the University of Utah in the Hinckley Caucus Room (located in Gardner Commons in the Hinckley Offices, Room 2018). They are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted.
Tune in Wednesdays at 10:00 AM and Saturdays at 9:00 AM on KCPW, 88.3 FM.
