With NPR's Talk of the Nation going away after this week, WNIN-88.3 FM's weekday schedule is going to shift around somewhat.
I'm told that the station is adding Here and Now, NPR's new expanded midday program, and it will air Monday through Thursday from noon to 3 p.m. CT. With that addition, Fresh Air will move to 11 a.m., which means that On Point is out.
The Trend, which airs Fridays at noon CT, is in reruns for the summer and will remain its existing timeslot, along with Science Friday, which remains in the 1-3 p.m. slot.
Here's the full list of what you'll hear each weekday on 88.3:
|4-9 a.m. CT||Morning Edition|
|9-11 a.m. CT||The Diane Rehm Show|
|11 a.m.-noon CT||Fresh Air|
|noon-3 p.m. CT||Here & Now (M-Th)|
|noon-1 p.m. CT||The Trend (Fri)|
|1-3 p.m. CT||Science Friday (Fri)|
|3-7 p.m. CT||All Things Considered & Nightly Business Report|
On another note, this week we bid farewell to longtime WNIN president and GM David Dial, who is retiring, and the station's Morning Edition/The Trend host, Micah Schweizer. Schweizer, as I told you in late May, is moving to become Wyoming Public Media's Cultural Affairs and Production Director. WPM is based at the University of Wyoming in Laramie.
We wish both gentlemen the very best in their new endeavors!
