Behind the Headlines

Another port near the Great Salt Lake; A.I. in schools; and Utah Pride Center intrigue

(Trent Nelson | The Salt Lake Tribune) Weber County property slated for an inland port on Thursday, Aug. 17, 2023.

At 9 a.m. on Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporters Leia Larsen, Carmen Nesbitt and Palak Jayswal, along with columnist Robert Gehrke, join Utah Public Radio’s Tom Williams to talk about the week’s top stories.
