‘Behind the Headlines’: Herbert’s big lead, dirty water, SAGE tests, Orlando shooting and more (6/17/19)


Gov. Gary Herbert holds a 45-point lead over challenger Jonathan Johnson in the Republican primary. Nearly three-quarters of Utah’s lakes fall short of meeting water-quality standards. Lawmakers and educators meet to decide the fate of SAGE testing. And Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox speaks out at a vigil for the victims of the mass shooting in Orlando, Fla.

On Friday at 9 a.m., Salt Lake Tribune reporters Annie Knox, Emma Penrod and Robert Gehrke as well as managing editor David Noyce join Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories.

Each Friday morning, stream “Behind the Headlines” on or tune in to KCPW or Utah Public Radio for the broadcast.
