SALT LAKE CITY — On October 1st and 2nd, members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will come together to hear guidance and inspiration from church leaders. 

The KSL NewsRadio staff has been working for months to help make the upcoming conference unforgettable, and we hope you’ll spend your weekend with us. We will carry all five sessions live on 102.7 FM and 1160 AM or via the KSL NewsRadio app. In addition, we have hours of special content airing before, after and in between sessions. Scroll down to see the full conference schedule with descriptions.

Saturday, October 1st

9:30 a.m. — Conference walk-up with KSL NewsRadio’s Maria Shilaos.

10:00 a.m. — General Conference: Saturday Morning Session

12:00 p.m.The Letter: From Murder to Mercy –  When it comes to forgiveness, most of us think it’s a concept we understand, but it might be more complicated than we think. In The Letter Podcast, host Amy Donaldson tells the story of Sy Snarr – a mother whose son was killed in a random shooting more than 25 years ago. Today, Sy has not only forgiven her son’s killer, she says she loves him. In this special program, Amy plays segments of the podcast and talks to experts about the remarkable power of forgiveness. 

1:00 p.m. — The Sad History of Tragedy Spring – Three members of the Mormon Battalion are buried at Tragedy Spring, a once peaceful spot high in the Sierras. Marked a historic site, it has been visited by many who remember the Battalion and its impact on the history of California and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In recent years, Tragedy Spring has fallen victim to sad events — a windstorm in 2020 that brought down large trees at the site, and the Caldor fire which burned through the area in 2021. Whether it can be restored to its former beauty is an open question. KSL Newsradio’s Dan Bammes talks to historians and volunteers to share the journey — the past and the potential future of Tragedy Spring. 

2:00 p.m. – General Conference: Saturday Afternoon Session

4:00 p.m.New Ways of Learning: The Alternatives to College –  As the announcement of student loan forgiveness has come forward and many teens start their path into adulthood, college is top of mind for many people. In this conference special, Dave Noriega takes an in-depth look at the alternatives to college, including a focus on the power of trade schools, and entrepreneurship, as well as how to have an open and understanding discussion with your kids about whether or not the traditional college route is the path to them or if they should consider alternatives.

5:00 p.m.Genetics & GenealogyTwin sisters had to make a hard choice when they found out their extremely high risk of breast cancer. Host Debbie Dujanovic shares their inspiring story and how decoding your genetics and geology can help minimize your own cancer risks.

6:00 p.m. — General Conference: Saturday Evening Session

Sunday, October 2nd

8:00 a.m. — A Woman’s View – A special conference edition hosted by Amanda Dickson.

9:00 a.m. — After It All

9:30 a.m. — The Choir at Temple Square

10:00 a.m. — General Conference: Sunday Morning Session

12:00 p.m. — The Interconnectedness of First Amendment Rights – Defending the rights of religion and belief, freedom of speech and of the press, freedom to assemble and the freedom to petition the government are the responsibility of every citizen.  The interdependent nature of these freedoms not only requires every citizen to defend them generally and to defend them for those we agree with, but more importantly, to defend these rights for those with whom we disagree.  Indeed, if all Americans, believers and non-believers, do not put the first freedoms first we will not have a sustainable republic that will last. Through numerous interviews we will paint the picture of why these first freedoms are first. Hosted by Boyd Matheson. 

1:00 p.m. — Discovering The New Stories of Old Pioneers – Mary Richards returns to KSL NewsRadio to celebrate lesser-known stories of Utah Pioneers; from the early Black pioneers who helped settle the Salt Lake Valley, to early female politicians leading the suffrage movement, and innovative innovators who helped put silicone slopes on the map. Mary is joined by “His Name is Green Flake” director Mauli Bonner, Senior State Historian of the Utah Division of State History Doctor Holly George, Better Days Education Director Tiffany Greene and Historical Director Rebekah Clark, and executive director of This is the Place Heritage Park, Ellis Ivory. Together they explore individuals who rooted the Beehive state in our pioneering heritage, and how we can connect to these predecessors in story, spirit, and place. 

2:00 p.m. — General Conference: Sunday Afternoon Session
