Every Sunday night channel 2, aka KUTV, profiles a different local personality. This last Sunday they profiled Radio From Hell and X96's Kerry Jackson. They talked about growing up on a farm, Kerry's battle with cancer and what makes a person a geek. Check out the segments below and get to know Kerry a little bit better.
Kerry on getting into radio.
Kerry on being adopted.
Kerry on not having kids.You can watch Bill Allred's Person2Person here.
Tyler Glenn of Neon Trees sat down on a Channel 2's "Person 2 Person" with Shauna Lake in two parts to talk about Neon Tree's roots, why he doesn't have a driver's licence, coming out in Utah and the new album, "Pop Psychology."
If anything watch to see news anchors say, "Sleeping with a Friend." Then think of all the uncomfortable things you would like to watch news anchors say.
Also, I have no idea why one is big and one is small. I failed programmer's school.

The proprietor of two of the most popular bars in Salt Lake (Bar X and Beer Bar), actor and star of "Modern Family", Ty Burrell, loves Salt Lake so much that he wrote us a nice little love letter. As picked up by the Trib via the Huffington Posts "Love Letter" section, Ty wrote about Salt Lake:
"I’m fairly certain that you’re about to explode onto the national scene in the way that some other smaller cities have in the past 10 years," Burrell wrote in the Huffington Post letter. "I will try to keep my jealousies at bay as people move here."
Read the full letter here and swoon away in a bubble bath.
So Salt Lake, don't ever sell yourself short again. Get some hair product and an expensive shirt from Nordstrom Rack because we have a date with a star.

Tuesday: In the season finale of STORAGE WARS NEW YORK … yeah, I lost interest even more quickly than you did (A&E). Watch DRUNK HISTORY harder (Comedy Central).
Wednesday: New reality series MODERN DADS follows the daily misadventures of four Austin stay-at-home fathers … so that’s a show (A&E). NECESSARY ROUGHNESS closes Season 3 (USA), and THE SOUP celebrates 500 episodes with a live broadcast—what could possibly go wrong? (E!)
Thursday: Get ready for GHOST SHARK! It’s a shark, and a ghost, and a movie! Hey, it’s far more plausible than a Sharknado (Syfy).
Saturday: In the Lifetime movie ESCAPE FROM POLYGAMY, spoiler alert, all disinterested parties do indeed escape from polygamy (Lifetime). Meanwhile in the summer finale of AXE COP, Axe Cop takes on a young protégé—but he’s possessed by the soul of a killer rabbit with a grudge! Then there’s HIGH SCHOOL USA … meh (Fox).
Sunday: The 30th MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS claims that MTV still shows music videos, and therefore can present awards to said videos. Me, I’m somewhat suspicious (MTV).

Back when MTV did show videos, you could sometimes see Gina Barberi dancing in Warrant’s less-popular follow-up single to “Cherry Pie,” “Chocolate Donut.”
