Behind the Headlines

LDS Church stake in Great Salt Lake, basketball game outbursts and crosswalk flags

(Leah Hogsten | The Salt Lake Tribune) The crosswalk warning device at 200 South at Edison Street on Friday, February 3, 2023.

How The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints could have a say in the Great Salt Lake’s survival. Utah students barked like dogs at Asian American and Polynesian basketball players. And officials gear up to again promote crosswalk flags in Salt Lake City, but some question how effective they are.

At 9 a.m. on Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporters Leia Larsen, Courtney Tanner and Paighten Harkins, 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.
