‘Behind the Headlines’: West Jordan’s Facebook deal, American Fork River fills with sediment and The Tribune’s new editor (8/26/16)


West Jordan’s on-again, off-again Facebook deal, with the city offering the company $240 million in incentives, could be back on the table. More than 70 percent of likely Utah voters say longtime Sen. Orrin Hatch should not run for another term. Dam repair in American Fork Canyon leads to the release of sediment into the river. And Salt Lake Tribune publisher and owner Paul Huntsman introduces Jennifer Napier-Pearce as the newspaper’s new editor.

On Friday at 9 a.m., Salt Lake Tribune reporters Tony Semerad, Matt Canham and Robert Gehrke, as well as 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.
