Salt Lake Tribune journalists participate in KCPW’s weekly news roundup.
Utah Prosecutor David Leavitt is calling on Sheriff Mike Smith to resign, saying the top cop may have tried to embroil him in a “ritualistic” sex ring investigation. Hate crimes against the LGBTQ community in Utah nearly doubled in the past year, with a big spike during Pride Month. And the Iowa House, “an experiment in progress,” offers queer Utahns a place to be themselves over Sunday lunch.
At 9:00 a.m. Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporters Paighten Harkins, Jessica Miller and Saige Miller, along with news columnist Robert Gehrke, join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to discuss the week’s top stories.
