"He’s more than even-handed," says Paul T. Mero, president of Utah’s conservative Sutherland Institute think tank, who has been interviewed a half-dozen times on RadioWest. "He doesn’t have some sort of agenda; there is no political plot to what he’s doing. I think he just wants to understand."

"So much in this state is tied up in your cultural beliefs," says Fabrizio, to explain his reluctance to air his own views about politics and religion, on the radio or even in an interview for the newspaper, for fear that revealing his stance would get in the way of a conversation later, on air.
If Doug Fabrizio ever were to interview himself on the radio — well, he simply wouldn’t.
