Awesome local news source for Utah
Doug Wright talks about the local issues for the state of Utah. Doug Wright is whitty and informative. He often has guests who are involved in the issues, and Doug is not affraid to ask the hard questions. However, every Friday, Doug Wright hosts THE MOVIE SHOW, where he, Steve Sales, and Michael Regan talk about the latest movies out in theatres, and on DVD. Doug, Steve, and Michael give their reviews, and have a lot of fun. All the professionalism that goes into the show Monday throu Thursday, go out the window on Friday!!!! I LOVE THIS SHOW. Great for News junkies and Utahns
Repeat,repeat and repeat.
This show would receive 5 stars but the host says the same thing over and over. Say it once! Doug also has a Bill Shatner way of speaking that can really annoy me. I do like the topics that he talks about on the air. It's an alright show if you can put up with those things.
Doug Wright Show
I like it, but I wish there were more episodes. My grandmother especially wants to start listening, but I don't think she can justify buying an ipod and all that just for a handful of episodes.
