Capitol assault, electoral endgame and Utah’s new governor on this week’s ‘Behind the Headlines’

Join Salt Lake Tribune journalists on KCPW’s weekly news roundup.

(Andrew Harnik | The Associated Press) Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., stops to look at damage in the early morning hours of Thursday, Jan. 7, 2021, after protesters stormed the Capitol in Washington, on Wednesday.

The storming of the U.S. Capitol by a pro-Trump mob calls into question the stability of America’s democracy. Two members of Utah’s congressional delegation vote to object to the will of the American people as expressed through the presidential election, even as Sen. Mitt Romney remains steadfast in his defense of democratic norms. And Utah welcomes a new governor.

At 9 a.m. on Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporters Lee Davidson and Taylor Stevens, along with news columnist Robert Gehrke, join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories.
Every Friday at 9 a.m., stream “Behind the Headlines” at kcpw.org, or tune in to KCPW 88.3 FM or Utah Public Radio for the broadcast. Join the live conversation by calling (801) 355-TALK.
