SALT LAKE CITY — Lee Lonsberry, who has served as communications director for GOP Rep. Rob Bishop, is returning to Utah to host a show on KSL Newsradio.
Beginning in December, Lonsberry, who was the producer for “The Doug Wright Show” for four years, will take over the 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. time slot. He will focus on news, politics, current events, Lonsberry’s self-described particularly “peculiar” perspective on life, and life in Utah.
“Hosting this show will be a thrill and a privilege,” Lonsberry said in a statement. “I’ve been preparing for this show my entire professional life, and arguably, well before that.”
In addition, Deseret News opinion page editor Boyd Matheson is hosting an hourlong show from 11 a.m. to noon.
According to the station, “Inside Sources,” formerly a 30-minute program, aims to connect the dots, challenge current thinking and elevate the dialogue around the news of the day.
“These additions to the lineup are an exciting step forward for KSL Newsradio,” Tanya Vea, senior vice president and market manager for Bonneville Salt Lake City, said in the the statement. “Our commitment to local reporting, fairness and coverage of the biggest breaking news is greater than ever.”
