As you may have heard, NPR has made the difficult decision to wind down production of Talk of the Nation at the end of June. In its place, NPR and WBUR in Boston are joining forces to expand and re-launch WBUR’s daily show Here & Now as a national news program for audiences in the middle of the day. It will be the first program owned and produced by a Member station that is built on a close, day-to-day editorial collaboration with NPR. The expanded program will begin distribution July 1 and will be hosted by Robin Young, who has guided the show for over a decade, and Jeremy Hobson, the current host of Marketplace Morning Report.
We will offer Here & Now on WMUK-2 as it is fed live by the network. It will start and noon and run until 4 p.m.
Here’s the new P.M. schedule (starting July 1):
12:00 Here & Now
4:00 PRI’s The World
6:00 Tell Me More
7:00 Q with Jian Ghomeshi
10:00 Classical 24
