Behind the Headlines

Bungled COVID tests, school vouchers and press restraints

(Rachel Rydalch | The Salt Lake Tribune) The start of the 2022 legislative session kicks off at the Utah Capitol in Salt Lake City on Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2022.

At least 174,000 coronavirus tests in Utah may have been inaccurate, but patients weren’t told. A new measure at the Legislature would rekindle an old fight over school vouchers. And a proposed rule change would curb journalists’ access to lawmakers at Utah’s Capitol.

At 9 a.m. on Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporter Kim Bojórquez, independent investigative reporter Andrew Becker and news columnist Robert Gehrke 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.
