The latest in news and politics with a range of hosts every night. KSL at Night gives a refreshing take on the day's news with each host bringing their unique perspective and expertise to the conversation.

    KSL at Night: 6-21-2024

    Hosts: Rusty Cannon and Adam Gardiner 

    The Republican view of yesterday’s Legislative Special Session 

    Energy independence in Utah — it was a major focus of the special session held by the Utah State Legislature. House Speaker Mike Schultz joins the program to give insights into why a large portion of yesterday’s discussion was centered on a power plant in Millard County. KSL at Night hosts Adam Gardiner and Rusty Cannon also get insight into some of the other major bills from the special session, including public lands access. 

    The Democratic view of yesterday’s Legislative Special Session 

    Some other topics discussed in the special session included protections for international students and how Title IX is interpreted in Utah. Representative Jennifer Dailey-Provost, House Minority Whip, joins the show to explain how Democrats voted in the special session. She walks our listeners through the changes to Title IX and how she believes it hurts a vulnerable group of people, transgender students. 

    Claims of Chinese land ownership in Utah 

    Throughout this primary election, land ownership has become a hot topic. One sub-topic of that is how much land China owns in the United States, and here in Utah. While it’s true that China does own land in Utah, the claim needs some context. The KSL at Night hosts walk through recent legislation that prevents some foreign ownership of Utah land. 

    Strengthening trust in our elections process 

    Security and safety in our elections is vital for the democratic process to work effectively. But recent elections have called into question the validity and transparency of elections across the country and in Utah. Josh Daniels with Trust Utah Elections shares how Utah law — established by the state legislature — keeps our elections secure. If you want to know how the election process works ahead of next week’s Primary Election, you’ll want to make sure you listen. 

    Meet John Curtis, GOP candidate for U.S. Senate 

    This election cycle features a primary race in the Republican Party for the open Senate seat soon to be vacated by Mitt Romney. During KSL at Night, we want to make sure the candidates each have an opportunity to introduce themselves to Utahns. One of those people, John Curtis, GOP candidate for U.S. Senate joins the program in the studio to talk about his time as a congressman representing Utah and why he feels his campaign message is resonating with voters in the Beehive State. 

    Former president Trump and Senator Lee endorsing opposing candidates 

    In a few hot races across the country — including the 2nd Congressional District in Utah — former president Donald Trump and current Utah Senator Mike Lee are endorsing opposing GOP candidates. Lee and Trump have historically been on the same side of things, so does this difference indicate a deeper issue? Some conservatives say “no.” The hosts discuss their opinions. 

    Why did the U.S. cancel a meeting with Israeli officials? 

    This week, United States officials canceled a high-profile meeting with Israeli officials following a video from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. In the video, Netanyahu claims the U.S. has been withholding arms and ammunitions from Israel. American officials deny his claim. The KSL at Hosts hear from several officials talking about the video and share their thoughts. 

    The incredibly slow rollout of electric vehicle chargers by the federal government 

    It’s been more than two years since the money was allocated to build 500,000 electric chargers nationwide by 2030. We’re 6 years away from the deadline, and how many chargers have been built? 7. Only 7 chargers in 4 states. What’s causing the delays? What does this say about the future of electric vehicles in general? Hosts Adam and Rusty finish the show with a lively discussion.

What a great Late night show!

I love to listen to these guys at the end of the day. Really smart Local and National analysis. It is also very balanced politically and reports everything fair while putting their bias out there. They really help Utah politics be engaging.

Great local and national analysis

I’m so glad this is a full podcast now. It helps to have the diversity and experience these hosts have. Greg’s legal background - Leah’s political science expertise - Taylor’s experience in politics and I don’t know what Maura’s background is but she’s brilliant and articulate. Great show you guys - keep up the good work.
