Tom Barberi has long been known as “Utah’s Voice of Reason,” and God knows we need one. He’s moved around a bit, of course, because in Utah, we are NOT reasonable people. At least most of us. Tom has landed at 97.5 FM Talk, where he has a show from 12 to 2 p.m., and Holly Braithwaite is his co-host and producer.
Tom had a column at The Salt Lake Tribune, back when it was still an independent newspaper and not the Deseret News II, but those days are gone. Did I mention the Deseret News is owned by the Mormon Church? I’m not even going to begin to go into the shenanigans pulled by LDS Inc. in order to get editorial control over The Trib, but through some very shifty manuevering they finally managed to pull it off. Thus, the new moniker, Des News II. Of course, that’s just my moniker for them. But The Trib is independent no more, no matter WHAT they claim.
Annnnyway, I discovered (all right, like most things, I did not DISCOVER it. It fell into my lap, because Holly posted a comment on my blog.) that Tom and Holly are blogging! Yup, it’s true. And very amusingly, too. I’m adding it to my must-read blogs.
