The History of Broadcast News in Utah

Presented by J. Willard Marriott Library at J. Willard Marriott Library

Doug Wright of KSL Radio and Television, a broadcast veteran of nearly 50 years, will share a historic review of Utah radio, with anecdotes and insights along with historic photos, sound clips, and stories about the evolution of radio in Utah and the West. He will relate stories from his own personal experiences of interviewing many well-known celebrities, authors, politicians, and give insights into some of his most memorable broadcasting opportunities.

With a professional background distinguished by public service and community involvement, Doug Wright has long been recognized as a rational, dependable voice on a myriad of local and national topics. Most of his over 40 years in the broadcast industry have been spent at KSL Radio in Salt Lake City where listeners depend on his knowledge of worldwide political and current events to keep them informed. Each Friday morning Doug hosts the ever-popular KSL Movie Show, featuring movie reviews and entertainment topics.

Doug is a Utah native, proud of pioneer roots that go back to the 1840. Raised in the Sugarhouse area, Doug began his broadcast career while still in high school. An avid reader, his natural curiosity and love of history propelled him toward his favorite hobbies of collecting books, coins, and historical memorabilia. Married for over 30 years to his wife D., they are the parents of three children. Doug is a huge REAL Salt Lake soccer fan and cheers for the University of Utah!
