NPR is implementing some changes to its Morning Edition broadcast. Here's a Q&A guide that explains more about the changes and how it may impact what you hear when you tune in weekday mornings to NHPR.   

What’s Happening?

Beginning on Monday, August 13, listeners to NHPR may notice some slight changes to the Morning Edition broadcast.

To better reflect listening habits and changing patterns in news consumption, National Public Radio (NPR) is revising its Morning Edition clock.

A new player will hit the field when long-time Only a Game host, Bill Littlefield, retires this month.

July 28 marks Littlefield’s last day on the air. NHPR listeners know Only a Game as one of our longest-running programs.

WBUR (Boston’s NPR station) is currently searching nationwide for the right voice to fill his spot. Upcoming guest hosts will include:

- NPR contributor and The Gist podcast Host Mike Pesca (Saturday, August 4)

- Only a Game Senior Producer Karen Given (Saturday, August 11)

Thanks to all NHPR listeners and supporters who recently cast their votes in New Hampshire Magazine’s “Best of NH” 2018 awards.  

For the second year running, New Hampshire Public Radio came out tops in two different Readers' Poll categories. For overall excellence, readers cited NHPR as best “FM Radio Station” in the state. In addition, The Exchange with host Laura Knoy received the top prize in the "NH Radio Talk Show" category.

 

New Hampshire Public Radio received awards in multiple categories at the annual Public Radio News Directors Incorporated (PRNDI) conference and awards banquet in Philadelphia.
