By: Benjamin Wood

Jay McFarland, a former KSL NewsRadio pundit who hosted the “JayMac News Show,” plans to challenge Ben McAdams next year in Utah’s 4th Congressional District.

In a news release Thursday, McFarland’s team described the candidate as someone who “passionately fought for compassion, understanding, and respect in a world of ever-increasing political polarization" during his nine years at the Salt Lake City-based radio station, which is owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
