A new host took over on NPR’s 1A, starting today.  Jenn White most recently worked as a talk show and podcast host at NPR member station WBEZ in Chicago.  WPSU’s Kristine Allen spoke with White last week about getting her start in public radio, and why she thinks 1A is so important right now.  You can hear 1A weekdays at 1:00 p. m. on WPSU-FM.

NPR Political Commentator E.J. Dionne is also a Washington Post Columnist, and a Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution.  He is an author of 7 books, and most recently co-author of “One Nation After Trump: A Guide for the Perplexed, the Disillusioned, the Desperate, and the Not-Yet Deported.”  Dionne says President Trump has flouted the norms of democracy and the presidency.  And he offers ideas about renewing civic engagement, and how the U.S. can move forward after the Trump era.

Michel Martin, who hosted the NPR show Tell Me More, will be the new host of Weekend All Things Considered starting tomorrow. WPSU’s Emily Reddy talked with her yesterday about what we can expect from the show under her guidance.   

NPR's news clock

Did Morning Edition sound different to you today? NPR has changed its "clocks" (the schedule templates stations have to use to time the show's news stories, credits, PSAs, etc.). Some things you might notice are shorter segments, more regular breaks, and more frequent newscasts. There will also be some changes in the All Things Considered lineup. Thanks for your patience as we adjust to the changes!
