89.7 NPR News premieres Here & Now midday news program
As you likely have heard by now, long-time afternoon program Talk of the Nation hosted by Neal Conan will no longer be produced by NPR, so we have been searching for a replacement program over the past few months. WOSU 89.7 NPR News is excited to start airing Here & Now from 2 to 4 pm weekday afternoons starting in July. This is a live production from NPR and WBUR-Boston hosted by Robin Young and Jeremy Hobson. We’ve also made the decision to retain the Friday afternoon program Science Friday with host Ira Flatow. As these programs air, please let us know your thoughts! We will miss Neal and the wit of “Political Junkie” Ken Rudin, but Ken will still be heard periodically on our local talk program, All Sides with Ann Fisher.
