This time on The Media Scrum we speak with Jim Burton, longtime sports writer and columnist for the Standard-Examiner. Since leaving the Standard, Jim has dabbled in PR and marketing, and even did some editing at the Deseret News. But now he's enjoying work at El Monte golf course in Ogden. We sure enjoyed talking to our old friend, Jim, who definitely has some feelings and observations about journalism and where it’s at now.

Chris Carlson -- "9/11 with POTUS"

by The Media Scrum/Chris Carlson
1y ago
This time on The Media Scrum we venture outside the Utah media bubble and speak with Chris Carlson, who worked in network-TV news for 42 years. As an ABC News cameraman in Washington, D.C., Carlson had a front-row seat to history. In covering Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump, Carlson logged scores of unique experiences. Over the decades he spent at the White House, Carlson witnessed many leaders of the "free world" from just 12 feet away, filming the nation’s political history as it was happening. After retiring three years ..read more

This time on The Media Scrum we speak with Lori Buttars, longtime reporter for The Salt Lake Tribune. Lori covered the Olympics, arts and music, and all sorts of beats at the Trib. She’s also been a “visiting professional” at Utah State University where, like yours truly, she edited the student newspaper when she was a student there. Back in 2007, Lori fled journalism for public relations as public information officer for the Weber-Morgan Health Department. We actually spend a fair amount of this conversation talking about local public health's response to the coronavirus pandemic, which we fo ..read more

This time out things are a little different, since Mark had a conflict the evening of the interview, and I ended up speaking with our guest, the Deseret News’s Jay Evensen, one-on-one. Jay is the DNews’s editorial columnist and an editorial writer. He got his start in journalism at BYU, interned at United Press International in New York City, wrote sports in Oklahoma, and was a government and consumer affairs reporter in Las Vegas before landing at the Deseret News. We haven’t talked to many folks from newspapers’ opinion pages on The Media Scrum, so this was fun reconnecting with Jay – I hadn ..read more

This time out we’re revisiting a conversation we had last summer with Mary Nickles, whose career at KUTV in Salt Lake City just passed the 30-year mark – and 30 years is forever in TV news. Mary has been the morning, noon and/or evening anchor on KUTV’s various news programs for about 25 of those years. Not only is she a pro on the news set, but she’s done health stories over the years that have actually saved lives – including her own. She talks about that, and lots more, on this episode. We had a lot of fun talking to Mary, and we hope you enjoy our conversation.  Support the show (http ..read more

This time we’re repeating an episode from March 2021 which has us talking to Cathy Free, who’s been a journalist for 40-plus years for the Salt Lake Tribune, Deseret News, Spokane Spokesman-Review, People magazine, Reader’s Digest and, currently, The Washington Post. While Mark and I worked in Utah newspapering for decades ourselves, we never crossed paths with Cathy, but we were familiar with her byline. So, it was interesting to meet her via Zoom and to hear about her unquestionably impressive career path. It was a fun and interesting conversation; we hope you think so, too.  Support th ..read more

We sincerely hope you’ve been having a terrific holiday season. We have, and that’s the reason we’re revisiting one of the earliest episodes of the podcast, from August 2020, with our friend Holly Mullen, because all the holiday stuff has taken up our time and that of our coming group of guests. Holly, bless her heart, was one of the first people we asked to be a guest on the podcast. She’s a certified institution in Utah journalism. She currently serves as a member of The Salt Lake Tribune's board of directors. Holly's career has taken her around the country working for both legacy newspapers ..read more
