Behind the Headlines

BYU messaging, a social media crackdown and a new cancer treatment

(Francisco Kjolseth | The Salt Lake Tribune) Students and patrons walk between classes on the BYU campus on Friday, Sept. 23, 2022.

Faculty members at Brigham Young University are urged to align their teaching and research better with tenets of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. A bill to regulate social media companies and minors’ access to those apps receives unanimous approval in committee at the Utah Legislature. And a promising new therapy uses a person’s own cells as a weapon against cancer.

At 9 a.m. on Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporters Tamarra Kemsley, Alixel Cabrera and Sofia Jeremias, along with news columnist Robert Gehrke, join Utah Public Radio’s Tom Williams 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 at for the broadcast. Join the live conversation this week by email to or Twitter @upraccess.
