As part of our reporting emphasis on Utah air quality, The Salt Lake Tribune is collaborating with KUED Channel 7 to collect Utahns’ "My Bad Air Day" stories and to share resources and information.

KUED’s first major piece on the topic, the new half-hour program "Utah NOW: The Air We Breathe," airs Feb. 5 at 7 p.m.

A discussion focused on possible solutions in which The Tribune’s Brian Maffly will participate will follow the broadcast at 7:25 p.m.

Produced by Isaac Goeckeritz and narrated by retired broadcast meteorologist Mark Eubank, "The Air We Breathe" explores what we know about Utah’s pollution problem and how it affects our health.

Its focus is on topics similar to those Maffly explored in the Dec. 22 story, "Scientists tackle Utah’s particulate pollution puzzle," and Kirsten Stewart explored in the Jan. 26 story, "Parents, doctors question how pollution affects Utah’s children."

Maffly will join Robert Grow, president and chief executive of Envision Utah, and Brian Moench, director of Utah Physicians for a Healthy Environment, for the panel discussion, which KUED’s Ken Verdoia will moderate.

The discussion will air again Feb. 9 at 4:25 p.m. after "The Air We Breathe" repeats on KUED at 4 p.m. that day.

Meanwhile, continue to send "bad air day stories" to utairquality@sltrib.com with "My Bad Air Day" in the subject line or share them at facebook.com/saltlaketribune" target="_blank">facebook.com/saltlaketribune.
