SALT LAKE CITY -- He is the sixth of nine children born to Jon and Karen Huntsman, and he has his father's penchant for business.

Paul Huntsman has served as Vice President of Huntsman Corporation and in other executive positions both in and out of the family business.

Now he is the owner and publisher of The Salt Lake Tribune, having rescued it from almost certain demise. Recently Paul Huntsman sat down with Bob Evans to answer 3 Questions.

  1. Your late father really set the pace for community service. Your brother has served as the Governor of Utah. Your niece is a network news reporter. Do you view purchasing The Salt Lake Tribune, and running it, as a public service?
  2. After years of having free access to The Salt Lake Tribune online digitally, now you are charging $8 a month. How tough of a decision was that, and why did you come to it?
  3. You are a Republican, and a devout Latter-day Saint. There are times the paper that you own, editorially, is at odds with the LDS Church. How do you reconcile that?
