45 Days Is Back!

Just in time for Utah’s 2021 legislative session, 45 Days is back. We have two new hosts to guide you through the twists and turns of this unprecedented moment: KUER political reporters Sonja Hutson and Emily Means. They’ll dive deep into the biggest bills and issues each week. New episodes drop Friday mornings.
You can also subscribe to our weekly newsletter.

Sonja Hutson is a politics and government reporter at KUER. She’s been reporting on politics ever since the 10th grade, when she went to so many school board meetings the district set up a press table for her. Before coming to Utah, Sonja spent four years at KQED in San Francisco where she covered everything from wildfires to the tech industry. When she’s not working, you can find her skiing, camping, or deeply invested in a 1000 piece puzzle.
Emily Means was raised in Layton, Utah, but she’s found her place in Salt Lake City. She’s worked at just about every public radio station in and around Salt Lake, starting as a weekend host at KUER in 2015, then a producer at KRCL and KCPW and a municipal reporter at KPCW in Park City. As one of KUER's politics reporters, Emily is most passionate about social justice issues. She loves drinking lattes from local coffee shops and exploring her neighborhood in search of cats.
