Radio head: Doug Fabrizio finds a new voice as Sherlock Holmes

RadioWest host takes on the mystery of the world’s most famous detective.

As for RadioWest, "It’s not talk radio," says producer Clark, referring not just to the show’s few on-air phone calls but also its refusal to get into shouting matches or rants, even as Fabrizio drills down to make politicians and pundits explain themselves.

"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.
