Starting in October, 89.7 NPR News weekend listeners will enjoy two new programs: one hosted by one of public media’s most well-known names, the other by public radio’s newest star.

It’s Been a Minute with Sam Sanders

On Sunday, October 8, NPR’s It’s Been a Minute with Sam Sanders makes its radio debut on WOSU and other stations around the country.

You may have heard Sam’s trademark curiosity and empathy during last year’s election coverage on WOSU or on the NPR Politics Podcast. His basic concept: the world is complicated. Let’s talk it out.

Sam will talk with journalists, newsmakers and listeners about news, popular culture, and the internet — stories big and small, about all subjects, with equal vigor and interest. Sam will also spend time with actors, musicians and comedians. It’s Been a Minute is an irreverent, casual program which will help 89.7 NPR News listeners understand the big events of the week and get personal with some of the biggest names in the arts.

It’s Been a Minute airs Sunday mornings at 10am.

Columbus loves its food — whether it comes from a fine restaurant, a gastropub or the family kitchen. Now each Saturday afternoon Columbus foodies have a new show to satisfy their hunger for culinary knowledge.

Milk Street Radio, hosted by renowned chef and author Christopher Kimball will ask questions and get answers about cooking, food, wine, culture, farming and restaurants.

Christopher is a longtime public TV and radio host and founder of Cook’s Illustrated. Each week he’ll be joined by a four-star cast of contributors including public television host and cookbook author Sara Moulton, New Yorker writer Adam Gopnik, wine expert Stephen Meuse and Sporkful podcast host Dan Pashman.

Milk Street Radio airs Saturday afternoons at 4pm.
