‘Behind the Headlines’: Bear’s Ears, Shurtleff’s big break and (7/29/16) the Democratic National Convention


A state judge files a motion to dismiss public corruption charges against former Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff. Riders complain about price gouging by Salt Lake City International Airport taxis. Gov. Gary Herbert speaks out against designating Bears Ears as a national monument during a hearing hosted by Sen. Mike Lee. And Hillary Clinton becomes the Democratic presidential nominee at the party’s convention in Philadelphia.

On Friday at 9 a.m., Salt Lake Tribune reporters Jennifer Dobner and Thomas Burr as well as government and politics editor Dan Harrie and health, education and environment editor Rachel Piper join KCPW’s 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.
