Behind the Headlines

‘Behind the Headlines’: Shurtleff’s edge, algal threat, Zika and, of course, Trump’s unconventional convention (7/22/16)


Utah Lake’s algal bloom proves problematic for Salt Lake, Utah and Davis counties. Davis County Attorney Troy Rawlings seeks dismissal of all charges against former Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff. A caregiver of a Zika-infected Utahn who died has also contracted the virus. And the unconventional Donald Trump becomes the official GOP presidential nominee at the party’s Cleveland convention.

On Friday at 9 a.m., Salt Lake Tribune reporters Jennifer Dobner, Emma Penrod and Alex Stuckey as well as government and politics editor Dan Harrie join Tribune reporter Benjamin Wood 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.
