The Bucket List

Thursday on the program, we're hoping you'll fill in this blank. "Before I die, I want to ________." Doug wants to sit center court at Wimbledon; Elaine wants to hike the Natchez Trace; and Ben wants to own his own farm. We're talking about bucket lists and about what kind of experiences make a difference in how happy we are and in the quality of our lives. Among our guests is Dave Lingwood, co-founder of the bucket list project called "The Buried Life." (And yes, he's played hoops with President Obama.)


Doug Fabrizio has been reporting for KUER News since 1987, and became News Director in 1993. In 2001, he became host and executive producer of KUER's RadioWest, a one hour conversation/call-in show on KUER 90.1 in Salt Lake City. He has gained a reputation for his thoughtful style. He has interviewed everyone from Isabel Allende to the Dalai Lama, and from Madeleine Albright to Desmond Tutu. His interview skills landed him a spot as a guest host of the national NPR program, "Talk of the Nation." He has won numerous awards for his reporting and for his work with RadioWest and KUED's Utah NOW from such organizations as the Society of Professional Journalists, the Utah Broadcasters Association, the Public Radio News Directors Association and the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
