A coalition of local government officials announced last week that they’d agreed to changes in the plan to address homelessness in the Salt Lake Valley. Previously, four homeless resource centers would be sited in Salt Lake City; now there will be just two, and a site in Sugarhouse won’t be one of them. A hard-closure date was also set for the downtown Road Home shelter. Hopes are high the new plan will work out, but there are skeptics. Doug and his guests are talking about it on Thursday.

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.
