KCRW’s New Midday Lineup

Written by

In today’s media environment, we know you need more trusted ways to process the firehose of information coming at you daily.

That’s why we’ve decided to add two exciting new shows to the KCRW lineup.

Starting Monday, June 18, we are adding  The Takeaway  and  The Daily  to our schedule.

Hosted by Tanzina Vega,  The Takeaway  offers national news and cultural coverage, with a strong new voice and an emphasis on audience engagement and in-the-field storytelling.

We also know that it’s more important than ever to get a deep dive behind the headlines.   The Daily  is just that. This half-hour show started as a wildly popular podcast from  The New York Times . Hosted by Michael Barbaro, it features the finest reporting and journalistic reach of  The Times , and it’s now been formatted for public radio.

How does this affect our daily schedule? You’ll see below that none of your great news, arts and culture programs are going away – we’re just making room to give you more of the quality programming you  expect!

We hope you’ll find this new lineup perfect for the curious listener that you are.  Come Monday, give the new schedule a whirl and drop us a line to let us know what you think. We’d love to hear from you.
