Behind the Headlines

COVID test draws scrutiny, inland port OKs budget, and cellphone records


The big boost a small, unproven Salt Lake City company got from the pandemic, and why the Securities and Exchange Commission began inquiries. The Utah Inland Port Board approves a truck-to-train transloading facility for the city’s northwest quadrant. And some Utah officials appear to be skirting transparency laws by using their private cellphones to conduct government business.

At 9 a.m. on Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporters Taylor Stevens and Leia Larsen, along with news columnist Robert Gehrke and independent investigative journalist Andrew Becker, join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories.

Every Friday at 9 a.m., stream “Behind the Headlines” at, or tune in to KCPW 88.3 FM or Utah Public Radio for the broadcast. Join the live conversation by calling 801-355-TALK.
