It was an unprecedented day of breaking news last Friday after a night of violence and chaos in Boston. WOSU’s 89.7 NPR News provided live programming from NPR and the Boston NPR affiliate WBUR throughout the day and into the night. It’s a reminder that we are the community’s only 24-hour NPR News operation, which in this case meant preempting all other programming, to better serve our listeners.
We’re proud of the thoroughness and care NPR, WBUR and our local news team took in the coverage of the hunt for the suspects of the Boston marathon bombing.
Please stay tuned, keep listening, and support this quality journalism as we focus on meeting critical fundraising goals this week. The Spring Fund Drive ends on Friday and we must raise $250,000 to continue to provide the national and local programming you appreciate. Thanks for giving!
